The Southbury Volunteer Firemen's Association, Inc. is a private, member governed corporation, operating as a non-profit organization and is chartered for the purpose of providing emergency service to the community. Serving a rural territory which includes several miles of Interstate 84, single family homes, industrial, heavy commercial, institutional, and some multi-family occupancies. Founded in 1932, we operate out of 4 facilities, with 16 specialty fire vehicles, and 107 department members. The Department provides services including Fire Suppression, Motor Vehicle Extrication, Operations level Hazardous Materials handling, Confined Space, and Water Rescue to the community.







  When You See a Blue Light, Pull to the Right. Volunteer Firefighters are required to display a flashing blue light to warn motorists while responding to emergencies in their personal vehicles. Although Connecticut Motor Vehicle Law does not require motorists to pull to over to the right, be courteous and let them pass.




The members of SVFA decided to hold a "Patch Contest" where several amazing ideas were entered. However the winning patch goes to Assistant Chief Dan Tomascak for his incorporation of the Pomperaug High School Panther. We are selling the patches for $5 each, if you are interested please get into contact with Sarah Palmer or JD McAulay! Thank you!
