About Us

image

Cromwell has a unique division of government and services.

A Town government, which provides many services, including education, police protection, and maintenance of the town infrastructure. The Cromwell Fire District is a separate and distinct governmental unit that provides water, fire, ambulance and emergency medical services to the citizens of Cromwell. Many residents don’t even realize until required to use the District’s services what we’re all about.

The Cromwell Fire District strives to maintain its high level of services in an ever-changing society. It is important to us for our citizens to understand our Fire District and the challenges it faces as it looks beyond traditional ways to meet increasing and ever shifting demands.

The Cromwell Fire District was established by a Special Act of the Connecticut legislature on March 16, 1893. The Act authorized and empowered the Fire District to provide a sufficient supply of water for fire and other purposes by contract with the Cromwell Water Company.

On May 5, 1927, again by Special Act of the Connecticut legislature, the Board of Fire Commissioners was established. This legislation created the titles and terms of office for the board and outlined the authorizations and procedures of the District, expanding the responsibility for maintaining the water supply and establishing a fire department. As a result, the Water Division and the Cromwell Fire Department came into being under direction of the Cromwell Fire District and its Board of Fire Commissioners.

The Board of Commissioners of the Cromwell Fire District consists of nine members who are elected for three-year staggered terms. Monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 P.M. at the Coles Road Firehouse and the public is encouraged to attend. This is your opportunity to get involved and learn more about the fire, EMS and water services that are provided to you! The meetings include the acceptance of reports from the various subcommittees, an updated monthly condition of the budget, and any business concerning water, fire, emergency medical services and the Fire Marshal.
