The Hebron Fire Department was founded in 1935 to meet the needs of a community that until then relied on the fire services of neighboring Colchester, Willimantic, and East Hampton. Situated on Main Street with their first motorized fire apparatus, a 1937 Ford Sanford fire engine, the Hebron Fire Department relied on volunteer members to provide fire protection year round. In time the Hebron Fire Department would acquire the Amston Lake Volunteer Fire Company, becoming Hebron VFD Company 2, as well as the Gilead Fire Brigade which ultimately became Company 3.
Today the Hebron Fire Department operates year round with 70 members, operating fourteen apparatus out of three stations, including two ambulances for medical response.
The Hebron Fire Department has proudly served for three-quarters of a century, relying heavily on professionally trained volunteers. If you'd like to join our team, visit the Hebron Fire Department on Main Street in Hebron to pick up an application.
