Due to the expected weather conditions on Thursday, October 14th Fire Awareness night has been postponed until Thursday October 21st between the hours of 6 and 9 PM, the New Milford Volunteer Fire Department’s Fire Education Committee will sponsor an annual Fire Awareness Night.  This event; held behind the borough hall;  provides an opportunity for residents and guests to interact with firefighters, and experience hands-on activities related to fire prevention, education and skills demonstration. All residents are encouraged to attend.

YOUR volunteer firefighters are not only responsible for fire suppression and keeping you safe when needed.  New Milford’s firefighters are your neighbors, and are eager to share knowledge in the prevention of fires and accidents, which helps keep everyone safe.

Although fire prevention is a yearlong activity, October is a time where we proactively show how YOU can stay safe, and eliminate the need to call us.  Although we hope the occasion never arises, we are here 24 hours a day – 7 days a week in the event anyone requires our help.
