STOP DOWN ON A MONDAY NIGHT FOR ONE OF OUR WORK NIGHTS. WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHOW YOU AROUND!
Costumed children and adults of all ages are invited to enjoy a unique trick-or-treating experience at the Southbury Firehouse on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29th between 4 & 7pm. Walk through our decorated indoor maze, and collect candy, glow bracelets, and 9-volt batteries for your smoke detectors. The 6th Annual HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR themes include: Despicable Me, Star Wars, Harry Potter, a Pirate Ship, a Cemetery, and MORE! The event is not scary, so it’s appropriate for all ages. Fire apparatus will be on display in the upper parking lot for families to see. Southbury Parks & Recreation will be providing outdoor entertainment, and handing out candy. Southbury Police and Southbury Ambulance will also have trick-or-treating stations. Don’t worry about feeding the family before coming. We are pleased to announce that Only the Hungry will be on-site with their food truck for the duration of the event. Menu options include: beef burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, chicken tenders, and fries. Parking is available at the Town Hall and Pomperaug Elementary School. The event is free, but we request a non-perishable donation for the Southbury Food Bank. Tell your friends! It will be an unforgettable experience. Hope to see you there!
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!
as it happens.
