Welcome to the West Hartford Fire Department website!
I am honored to represent the fine men and women who provide high quality fire marshal, firefighting, rescue, and advanced life support emergency medical services to our community. As the world changes, our fundamental mission of firefighting has evolved beyond “traditional” fire/rescue services. Our goal is to reduce risk within the community through outreach, inspections, and public education while simultaneously being prepared to respond to whatever emergency may present. Our staff are fully career and are geographically located in fire stations across the Town of West Hartford, on-duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
It is a privilege to lead a progressive fire department that continuously works hard to meet the needs of its community. As with any customer-driven organization, we are constantly evaluating the best and most efficient ways to deliver high quality service. If I can be of assistance in addressing concerns or providing additional information about our department, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
