ENGINE CO. 7
Engine Co. 7 has been serving the Springdale neighborhood of Stamford since November of 1997. Prior to that time, a small number of career Fire Fighters employed by the Springdale Volunteer Fire Company staffed a Springdale Engine Company.
In an effort to provide additional on-duty personnel and reduce operating costs, Springdale Fire Company Officials overwhelmingly supported the addition of Stamford Fire Rescue personnel to the Station. Existing Springdale career staff were merged into Stamford Fire and Rescue and Engine 7 entered into service in November of 1997.
Today, Engine 7 is the primary fire response unit to the Springdale neighborhood. In addition, Engine 7 serves as an important support unit providing apparatus and personnel to the Glenbrook, Belltown, and east side of the Turn of River Fire Districts.
Engine 7 responds from the Springdale Fire Station located at 987 Hope Street.
Engine 7 is also the primary unit to respond to mutual aide assistance to the West Side of the Town of New Canaan, CT.
Engine 7 is assigned a 2006 HME Silver Fox Fire Engine.
