Working together for our children's futures
The NFD started as a private fire department with the India Rubber Glove Company (later U.S. Rubber and then Uniroyal.) In 1883, the town fire department was organized. The first full-time fire fighter was hired in 1916.
Members of NFD maintain proficiency by attending training both in-service and at the Connecticut Fire Academy, and are trained in a variety of skills in addition to fire fighting. Some of these skills include confined space rescue, rope rescue, hazardous materials and emergency medical. The Fire Department will assist when called upon and serve our community with pride, integrity, and honor. The timely delivery of these services contributes to the improvement of the quality of life in the Borough of Naugatuck.
Its mission is to help Naugatuck children succeed in all facets of their growth and development by strengthening the community of families, individuals, and organizations that nurture and educate Naugatuck children. CT Partnership for Children envisions Naugatuck as a town where children grow into happy and productive citizens contributing to the success of the community.
By nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the borough’s health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.
As we continue to serve our community, we continue to build upon a legacy of positive impact, developed through our many successes over the last 120 years on behalf of the individuals and communities we are privileged to serve.
