Three Danbury volunteer fire companies consolidate

Three Danbury volunteer fire companies have been consolidated into one unit.  Hearst Connecticut Media reports that Wooster Hose, Citizens Hose and Phoenix Hose companies established the Danbury Volunteer Fire Battalion 19.  Consolidation discussions have been ongoing for years as the number of volunteers have shrunk and firehouse upkeep has increased.  The battalion’s business address is the Citizens Hose Company No. 6 firehouse on Jefferson Avenue, and while they are working together, all three volunteer companies are “still in business”.  They are still working out the logistics of training and documenting and responding to fire calls, but say that response has been improved since the consolidation.  Danbury has a combination career/volunteer department with paid firefighters at five locations and volunteers at 12 stations.
