The Newtown Fire Association is a volunteer fire protection organization that has served the community of Newtown since 1889.  The NFA is made up of highly trained, skilled, and professional volunteers that come from all walks of life; drawn together by the desire to serve others.  The volunteers of the NFA, along with the daytime career staff of the Newtown Emergency Services Department, are responsible for providing the community protection from fire, as well as responding to emergencies involving vehicle and technical rescue, emergency medical services, and hazardous materials.

The Newtown Fire Association NEEDS YOUR HELP!!  Facing added responsibilities caused by world events and local demographics, as well as an ever increasing populous, the Newtown Fire Association needs more volunteer members to suplement its staffing to better protect YOU and YOUR FAMILY.  No experience is required for new members, as all needed training will be provided by the NFA.  While the hours are less than desirable (24/7), and the work is hard, the feeling of accomplishment and pride make it all worth it.  But to add to that, the NFA offers a number of other benefits to its members including life insurance, training classes in most lines of emergency services, a paid per call system, and an in house fitness center.  So, if you think you can make a difference, join your friends, neighbors, and local businessmen and women in protecting all you and your family have worked for.  JOIN THE NEWTOWN FIRE ASSOCIATION!
