Update: Thanks for your support!
We need to clear fire hydrants around town after the latest snowstorm this week — you know, the one that was bigger than the fearsome blizzard — so we have started a new Adopt-a-Hydrant contest here in Beacon Falls.

The logos for Beacon Hose’s new T-shirts are here! These logos are exact replicas of Beacon Hose’s original logos from decades ago (and the ones you’ll see on the sides of most of our apparatuses). Thanks to Liberty Printing here in Beacon Falls for doing some great work!
Members who ordered the T-shirts at November’s monthly meeting will have them available at the firehouse. Contact the Chief’s office with any questions.
For now, these shirts will be available only to members. We hope to have some offerings for the public in the near future, as well.
The Beacon Hose Blaze newsletter for December 2014 highlights Chief Jim Trzaski’s messages about the importance of preparedness for all Beacon Hose members. Read Chief’s message and the entire newsletter below, or click here.
