  • Step Up & Stand Out Recruitment Day 10/1: Broad Brook, Ellington, South Windsor and Vernon

    Do you have what it takes?
    Do you have a desire to serve your community?
    Have you considered becoming a volunteer firefighter?

    Join us for an open recruitment day where we will have LIVE demonstrations and an opportunity to talk with department personnel about joining the volunteer fire service.


    This event is for residents of Broad Brook, Ellington, South Windsor and Vernon - both adults and teens age 14+ who may be interested in our junior/cadet programs.  Event location is at the Town of Ellington Fire Department Station 243 on 6 Nutmeg Drive from 10am-4pm.
    The fire service is a unique and complex business. In addition to being local heroes, today’s firefighters also serve as our nation’s first responders. Firefighters are well equipped and tasked to be highly trained and capable of responding to all types of emergencies. We need volunteers with various types of knowledge, skills and abilities.
