Chimney Fire

Mutual Aid to Brookfield, then New Milford

Before 6PM October 18th, 2015 Newtown Hook and Ladder was requested to respond an engine and crew and Hawleyville Fire Department with a tanker to cover the Brookfield Fire Department station on Pocono Rd in Brookfield. Brookfield FD was operating out of town in New Milford at the scene of two barns burning. Once on standby in the BFD fire station the NHL crew was requested to move up to the scene to assist. Hook and Ladder operated two towns away in New Milford for approximately an hour before being released and returned to Newtown.

2015 Firehouse Ride a success

untitled-0229September 27th, 2015 Newtown Hook and Ladder had another great day for a bike ride. One of the last great weekends of the season for riding motorcycles, the weather was perfect. We’d like to again thank all our sponsors and those that supported our efforts and as well as all those who attended for either the bike ride and or the barbeque afterwards.
