Join Beacon Hose

Beacon Hose Co. No. 1 is always looking for more members interested in joining our fire, EMS, and fire police units, as well as social members who contribute to department causes and special events. Prospective members must be willing to meet various standards and requirements, including attendance at meetings, trainings, calls, and events, as well as a background check and physical examination.

We accept applicants from Beacon Falls, Naugatuck, Bethany, Seymour, and Oxford. Any applicant who resides outside of Beacon Falls previously must have applied for membership in the volunteer department located in the applicant’s town of residence, or otherwise provide written justification regarding the reasons why the applicant did not seek such membership. Junior corps membership is also available for high school students aged 14-17.
