Apparatus and Equipment  Department vehicles and descriptions.
Cold Water Rescue Drill 1-21-18  We participated in an ice and cold water rescue drill Sunday on Bantam Lake with fellow firefighters and emergency responders from the Bantam Fire Company, Bethlehem Firefighters Association Litchfield Fire Dept. and East Litchfield Fire Co. See the Bantam Fire Company Facebook page for more photos and videos.
Work Night 1-18-18  Our volunteers were at the firehouse Thursday evening catching up on paperwork and filing. We also organized the Regional Re-Hab trailer and cleaned, folded and stowed the Yurt Tent we recently used while providing backup assistance to firefighters at a major structure fire in Plainville. And then we cleaned the apparatus bay floor. There's a lot more to being a volunteer firefighter than responding to calls.
Large Garage Fire in Plainville 1-6-18  We were on the scene of a large garage fire in Plainville, Connecticut last night, staffing the regional rehab trailer for firefighters along with colleagues from the Harwinton West Side Volunteer Fire Department.

Heroes Day at JMS 12-7-17  We proudly participated in Heroes Day at James Morris School on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Thursday, joined by members of the U.S. Army National Guard who arrived in a Blackhawk helicopter, and Connecticut State Police troopers and their service dogs. It was a great day for MVFD President Virginia Steinway, Chief Joel Skilton and volunteer Mark Silver. Very impressed with all the students and especially grateful for the letter of appreciation and terrific drawings done by the First Grade.

Boating Incident on Bantam Lake 7-19-17

 We responded to a water rescue call July 19 on Bantam Lake for an incident involving a Jet Ski and a boat. Mutual aid was supplied by Bantam Fire Company and the Bethlehem Firefighters Association, and Litchfield Volunteer Ambulance also responded. No injuries were reported in connection with the incident, investigated by the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) (DEEP). Our fellow volunteers at the Bantam Fire Company reported on Facebook that this was the third incident on the lake this month.

Lake Rescue Drill 7-12-17  We teamed up with our fellow volunteers from the Bantam Fire Company, Goshen Fire Company, East Litchfield and Northfield Volunteer Fire Company for important training on Bantam Lake on July 12th that included a canine search team specializing in water search. Rewarding day with the great men and women who help keep our wonderful Litchfield Hills communities safe and protected!
Roast Beef Dinner 4-8-17 The Morris Volunteer Fire Department Inc. particpates in multiple fundrasing efforts throughout the year. These efforts included our annual roast beef dinners. We held one of this years roast beef dinners on 4-8-17. During which we served almost 200 people. Since the MVFD is the charter organization for the Morris Boy Scout Troop #28, the scouts are always willing to help and participate in our fundraising efforts. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next roast beef dinner on 9-9-17.
Extrication Drill with Bethlehem FD 3-23-17  On 3/23/17 the Morris Volunteer Fire Department participated in a extrication drill with the Bethlehem Fire Department. The drill was held at Bethlehem's Fire House. The MVFD and BFD practiced removing victims from a crashed motor vehicle using various techniques. Some techinques included using the "jaws of life" and specialized lifting airbags. The drill concluded with the BFD using their airbags to lift the front end of our Rescue 6 truck off the ground.
Free CPR Class 3-4-17  On March 4th 2017 the Morris Volunteer Fire Department Inc. offered a FREE CPR training course to the residents of the town. Congratualtions to all who particpated in the course.
Cold-Water Rescue Class 2-18-17  On Saturday February 18th, and Sunday February 19th, the members of the Morris Volunteer Fire Department Inc. participated in a Cold-Water Rescue Class. The MVFD brought in instructors from the State of CT Fire Academy to teach the class. This class helped to teach the fire and EMS personnel what to do in the event of someone falling through the ice. The class consisted of both an in class room portion and a practical portion. We utilized the state Bantam Lake boat launch on Palmer Rd for the practical portion. The MVFD tries to participate in a cold-water rescue class once a year to be able to stay up to date on the newest techniques.
