About the Fairfield Fire Department

The Fairfield (Connecticut) Fire Department responded to over eight thousand six hundred  (8400+) calls for help during 2014. Those calls for help occurred throughout the entire 32 square miles of Fairfield, at all times of the day and night, and in all weather conditions, including severe storms and floods.

The Fairfield Fire Department responds to more than just fires. Emergency medical calls ranging from cardiac arrest to childbirth are just a few of the  medical emergencies we respond to. The Fairfield Fire Department has been designated by the State Department of Emergency Medical Services as the Emergency First Responder in our community. In addition to basic level care, Fairfield's Firefighters are also trained to utilize defibrillators as well as administer medication for patients having allergic reactions. Many Connecticut fire departments don't respond to emergency medical calls, they are handled by an outside service at an additional expense to the community.

The Fairfield Fire Department is a founding member of the Fairfield County Hazardous Materials Response Team. Many fire departments do not respond to hazardous materials incidents, regardless of the emergency nature. Those towns and cities are forced to have private contractors on retainer, and pay handily. Fairfield Firefighters also train for Specialized Rescue Operations. Known as "SPECOPS," members of the department train for confined space rescue as well as other technical rescue emergencies. This training is continuous and intense.

When measured against any fire department, the Town of Fairfield gets the most service out of their firefighters. Additionally, the services rendered by the Fairfield Fire Department go well beyond emergency response. Armed with knowledge, equipment and training, Fairfield Fire Fighters managed many reports of domestic terrorism. The Fairfield Fire Department continues to prepare for such homeland defense missions.

Thousands of other responses for public need are not reflected in the above statistics. Many of these non-emergency activities help reduce the number of emergency calls for help from our citizens. Smoke Detector Surveys, fire safety education of the public and private school children, fire inspections, pre-fire planning, O.S.H.A. mandated training of firefighters, police officers, public works employees and school maintenance staff, and many other efforts now make up the daily routine within our organization.
