Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro Announces $500,000 Grant to Provide for Simulcast Dispatch System
Pictured are (L-R) Chief William H. Seward III, Company 4 Captain Laura L. Burich, Company 2 Captain Kenneth W. Neubig, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, Deputy Chief of Training Robert W. Colangelo, Deputy Chief Anthony P. Esposito Jr. and Deputy Fire Marshal John J. O'Brien
On March 23, 2009, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro visited the North Branford Police Department to announce the receipt of a $500,000 grant from the federal government to allow for the construction of a simulcast dispatch system. This is necessitated by the topography of the town and the fact that many "dead" spots exist under our current single-transmitter system. The new system will accommodate Police, Fire and Public Works radio communications.
We Are Very Proud of Our Members' Accomplishments

Knights of Columbus Present Stuffed Animals to NBFD
At the January 6, 2011 Board of Fire Commissioners Meeting, members of the Totoket Council #6801 of the Knights of Columbus presented stuffed animals that they collected through their project SAFE which stands for Stuffed Animals For Emergencies. These animals will be distributed to young children who are involved in automobile accidents or other situations where the stuffed animal can act as a device to distract and comfort them. Pictured above are (L-R) Fire Chief William Seward, Knights Kyle Habiniak, Geoff DeMatteo and Richard Wethly and Ambulance Company Captain Laura Burich.
The North Branford Fire Department has completed sixty-seven
years of dedicated service to the Town of North Branford, a department comprised of all-volunteer personnel. During fiscal year
North Branford Fire Department continued its focus on emergency medical services, life safety, fire suppression and personal safety. The four companies responded to
over 1,700 calls during the
fiscal year. The North Branford Fire Department is constantly training its members in order to keep up with new changes in building construction,
HazMat, fire suppression and medical training.
This requires many hours of our volunteers' personal time in order to maintain their skills.
During fiscal year 2003-04, staffing of the primary ambulance was outsourced to
Vintech Management Services. Volunteers still pull roughly 20% of the
shifts and are compensated on a pay-per-call program which the Board of Fire
Commissioners approved in the fall of 2003.
