Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company

Community Mailer

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

For the past 86 years the Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company has protected the lives, property and businesses of our community.  The Fire Company responded to over 350 calls for assistance this past year for all types of emergencies.  The Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company is a 100% volunteer organization with a commitment to provide emergency service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to operate in a new set of protocols and safety procedures. All of our annual public and fundraising events had to be cancelled in the past year.  As a result of this we are experiencing a shortfall in donations that these events typically supplied.  We are asking for your support to get us through these unprecedented times. 

Please show your support for those who volunteer by donating using the items listed at the bottom of the page.  The contributions will be used to support the fire company’s mission to protect and serve all in the upcoming year.  In past years many new items have been purchased using these funds such as lifesaving medical equipment, advanced technology of thermal imaging cameras and firefighting protective equipment.  Please know that we are here for you and appreciate any amount you choose to donate.  The Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company is a certified charitable 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions may be tax deductible.

Lastly, we continue to need volunteers to sustain the fire company’s operation.  If you or someone you know has the desire and is ready to commit the time to be trained as a professional emergency responder please visit us at middlefieldfirect.org.  We need you to continue the over 200-year traditions of volunteer firefighting.  

Please use the attached form as well as the enclosed envelope for your donation.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated and will be used entirely for the fire company’s benefit.  Thank you for your support in this very difficult time.  We hope to be back soon with flowers at Easter or seeing everyone at the Fair.  

For the Officers and Members,

COVID-19 Update

With the many changes in our world the past several months, the Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company has been no different.  We have adjusted many of our protocols to those recommended by the CDC, our medical over sight, Middlesex Hospital and our Health Director.  We have changed our medical responses and number of responders to limit any possible exposure and transmission of the virus from one to another. When we respond you will see us in full personal protective equipment including a face mask, eye protection and usually a protective gown. 

Since Mid-March the Firehouse has essentially been closed to everyone except for those on emergency responses. While we usually welcome all visitors, we cannot due to the possibility of a virus spread.  Our members conduct a personal health check each time they come in to respond.  Most of our training has been in the form of electronic Google Meets as so many of you are now familiar with.  With the recent easing of restrictions, we expect to resume some outside training.

All of our social events have or will be cancelled for this year.  Events such as marching in the Memorial Day parade to salute those who have served and our send off to our graduating high school seniors were also cancelled.  We did miss everyone at our Easter Flower sale, Pancake Breakfast and golf tournament.   With the Durham Fair cancellation, we will also miss all that always supports our efforts.  While these fundraising events have postponed some of our plans and purchases that these events fund, we will continue to find ways to complete these projects.  Many have donated directly in place of these events and we appreciate all those contributions.

It has been a struggle for all of us in many different ways and trying to complying with every changing protocols.  The Fire Company will adapt, adjust and ultimately overcome this pandemic.  We urge all to continue to follow all guidance such as social distancing, the wearing of a mask in public and practicing good hygiene.  Please remember that we are still here if you need us for any emergency.  At some point in the future, this pandemic will be beaten.  Then we will once again be serving chowder and Kielbasa and the doors of the firehouse open to all. 

 Please stay safe and healthy.
