Our volunteer firefighters undergo extensive training and drill weekly to reinforce skills learned as well as maintain emergency equipment and the firehouse itself. RFD firefighters help make Rowayton the special place that it is through their involvement with many community events such as the Santa Run, Turkey Trot, July 4th fireworks, fire prevention education for nursery and elementary schoolers and the Memorial Day parade.
