Warehouse Point Fire District

About Us

The Warehouse Point Fire District is a geographical and governmental entity which is responsible for fire protection, suppression and fire marshal services for most of the western half of the Town of East Windsor.

The Fire Department came into being when it became apparent that the Windsor Locks Fire Brigade was hampered by long treks across the Connecticut River to extinguish blazes in Warehouse Point. There were no motorized fire apparatus 100 years ago. Pulling and carrying equipment was arduous and by the time the Windsor Locks Fire Brigade arrived at the scene of a fire, many of the responders were exhausted. Several village residents realized the need and formed the "Warehouse Point Fire Department".

Today, the Warehouse Point Volunteer Firefighters proudly carry on the nearly century old tradition started by our forefathers of, answering the alarm, serving our neighbors and protecting the citizens of our community.
