providing fire protection for the Town of Tolland since 1933. Today, the men and women who volunteer their services as Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians, Medical Response
Technicians or Fire Police officers work closely with six paid Firefighter/EMT's
in a modern combination department that provides the highest possible level of
fire, ambulance and emergency medical service for the town's residents and
businesses. These volunteers hope you will find the items on this web site helpful and informative!
