Welcome to the Canaan Fire Company's
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
The members of the Canaan Fire Company provide a safe and rapid response to any request for help and assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our training and experience in handling these incidents ensure the safety of the residents of North Canaan and beyond.
2020 has proven to be a difficult year for everyone. Volunteering during a pandemic has put a strain on our members and forced them to train for new situations and have a detailed eye on their safety and responses to every emergency. New personal protective equipment needs, sanitizing options and training have been implemented across our membership.
Another challenge is fundraising efforts. Due to the constraints of social distancing we are unable to hold any of our regularly scheduled fundraising events. The cancellation of events includes selling fried dough, our golf tournament, boot drive and annual raffle. We are looking at lost revenue tallying $60,000 for the year. Our members pride themselves in our ability to work to raise funds to keep this company going, and this year our hands are tied.
We are reaching out tot he community for support. Today, while it is fresh in your mind, we ask that you consider making a tax deductible donation to support us. Remember that you will never receive a bill for our services. We recognize how difficult these times are for everyone and appreciate any contribution you can make at this time.
When making your contribution, please remember that your call for help is answered by your friends and neighbors who volunteer. Your donation directly assists The Canaan Fire Company in providing better service and protection to our community.
Donations can be mailed to
