Friday, November 20, 2015

The Tolland Fire Department, Inc. has been 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!
