Never Forget the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11/2001

Let us never forget the atrocities experienced on 9/11 that took the lives of so many police, firefighters, military and civilians and sparked a resurgence of volunteerism and service in communities across the country.  Please take a moment to remember all who lost their lives and honor those survivors suffering from illnesses caused by their dedicated work following the collapse of the World Trades Centers, the attack on the Pentagon and the crash in Pennsylvania.

Oakland Gardens becomes East Farms Station 2

The Town of Farmington Fire Department realigned fire stations on the east side of Town during 2016.  Oakland Gardens station, located at 112 Farmington Ave., previously aligned with the Farmington Volunteer Fire Department (Main St.), is now aligned with the East Farmington Volunteer Fire Department.  To learn more about the proud history of Oakland Gardens, please visit the link on the left to the Farmington VFD, then select History on their page.

Station 2 continues the proud tradition of providing service to the Oakland Gardens, Talcott Notch, Ely Rd. and Vine Hill Rd. areas.

Brush Fire Season is upon us

April 4, 2013

 

With the winter now coming to a close, the spring brush fire season is here. The warmer weather and dry gusty spring winds comes dry vegetation that can result in brush fires that burn and spread quickly. Residents are urged to use caution and report any suspicious odors of smoke or outside burning. Although Farmington is not known for having extensive brush fires, we are always concerned about the potential for camp fires and open burning that gets away from home owners. Please contact the Farmington Fire Marshal at 860-675-2322 if you have any questions about outdoor fires. Additionally please see the attached prevention tips from the State of Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
