On this date 100 years ago, February 28th 1918, the International Association of Firefighters was organized. In celebration of this milestone, the IAFF has created a website that chronicles the history of our union. Please visit at: https://100years.iaff.org/

Structure Fire on Drum Hill Rd. 

At 1035 hrs, WFD was dispatched for a report of a structure fire in the area of Drum Hill Rd. Engine 2 and Engine 4 responded immediately and Engine 1 was slightly delayed in their response due to an earlier medical call. WFD units found and extinguished a fire in an older single family home. No residents were inside the home at the time of the fire. Wilton Firefighters Local 2233 would like to thank the following departments for their assistance: Norwalk Firefighters Local 830,Westport CT Firefighters, IAFF L1081New Canaan Fire Department IAFF Local 3224Weston Volunteer Fire DepartmentVista Fire Department,Ridgefield Volunteer Fire DepartmentWilton Volunteer Ambulance CorpsWilton, CT Police Department, and Wilton CERT. the photo is from the Norwalk Hour and more photos and their article can be found here: https://www.thehour.com/news/article/Firefighters-repond-to-Wilton-house-fire-12633315.php#item-75564
