Georgetown Fire District

The Georgetown Volunteer Fire Company was organized in May of 1928 by a group of men who realized the need for fire protection in the community. Today, the men and women of the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Company are just as dedicated to the preservation of life and property as those who started this organization. This past year, the Company responded to 341 emergency calls.

Our jobs today include not only fire fighting, fire prevention and emergency medical service, but hazardous material situations, vehicle extrication, rope and cold water rescue, just to name a few. Other services we provide to the public includes our annual Halloween party and CPR Saturday. Our Halloween party provides a safe and fun filled evening for children of all ages complete with a haunted house, magic show, cider and donuts. The CPR Saturday is designed to teach basic CPR to anyone who wishes to learn this life saving procedure.

During the past year we were fortunate to have three new members join our ranks. These new members have all been trained either as Emergency Medical Technicians or firefighters and have become an integral part of our department. Anyone interested in joining our Department may stop by the firehouse any Monday evening between 7-9 p.m. or call 544-8800 and leave a message.


We need Volunteers!

Our members are mechanics, police officers, teachers, students, local business owners and stockbrokers, and each is also a highly trained, State-certified firefighter or Emergency Medical Technician dedicated to the health, safety and welfare of the people our community. Last Year we responded to 749 calls. Become A Volunteer!! Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians needed. We will train you.

Anyone interested in joining the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department can call 203-544-8800 or stop by the firehouse any Monday evening between 7 – 9 pm.
