When You See a Blue Light, Pull to the Right.Volunteer Firefighters are required to display a flashing blue light to warn motorists while responding to emergencies in their personal vehicles. Although Connecticut Motor Vehicle Law does not require motorists to pull to over to the right, be courteous and let them pass.
The members of SVFA decided to hold a "Patch Contest" where several amazing ideas were entered. However the winning patch goes to Assistant ChiefDan Tomascak for his incorporation of the Pomperaug High School Panther. We are selling the patches for $5 each, if you are interested please get into contact with Sarah Palmer or JD McAulay! Thank you!
