The Volunteer Fire Department of Prospect provides services necessary to minimize the loss of life and/or property threatened by the hazards of fire, explosions, medical, chemical and rescue for the Town of Prospect, Connecticut and the residents.  

The department was created in 1945 and prides itself on the advancements and progress the department has made since its formation.  Dedication and professionalism to the Town of Prospect allows the department to provide the best services possible to the area. 


Prospect’s response area covers 14.3 square miles of a rural community just south of Waterbury, the fifth largest city in Connecticut.  Our town is a small, tight night community that is seeing economic and community development at a steady rate each year with continued commercial developments and large school housing projects.   These increases in development have increased the departments call volume significantly. 


The department services the residents of Prospect as well as neighboring towns, departments and residents in times of emergencies.  The responsibility is to provide fire prevention and suppression services in addition to emergency medical services and management of hazardous materials situations to all communities.
