Honoring Local Heroes

April 8, 2016

On Saturday, April 9, 2016, more than 55 volunteer fire departments throughout the state will celebrate the start of National Volunteer Week (April 10-16) by holding open houses. Wethersfield Volunteer Fire Department will be participating in this special event by opening the doors to its fire houses located on Main Street and Griswold Road from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Visitors to the fire houses will be able to talk with volunteer firefighters about the work they do, explore fire apparatus and turnout gear, get a tour of the fire house, and fill out an application.
