Attention Residents! It has been brought to our attention that residents from neighboring areas have received phone calls soliciting donations for the Fire Deparment. We have not and will not call and solicit for donations, we do our donations via the Postal Service. Please do not give card numbers or send any money to these people even if the caller ID even states "Volunteer Fire Department". If you do wish to donate to the the fire companies, we encourage you to come to our events or mail in donations to our address.
The Oxford Center Volunteer Fire Company is one of three 100% volunteer fire and rescue departments protecting the Town of Oxford, Connecticut.
The department currently utilizes 2 Engines, 1 Rescue, 1 Tanker, and 1 Ladder Truck. Firefighters provide fire, rescue, and emergency services to over 15,000 citizens covering 33.0 square miles. Along with the Town of Oxford, the department also provides mutual aid to the surrounding communities.
Each of our dedicated firefighters is a non-paid professional. They come from all walks of life; many are highly educated individuals with families, and long commutes to and from work each day. Some reside in the town, others do not. The one thing they all have in common is they are volunteers, dedicated to helping others. They give countless hours of their own time and resources, all without compensation. They train extensively and when called to duty, serve the residents of Oxford, with excellent fire protection and rescue services.
