Somerville Volunteer Fire Department

In August 2015, the Fire Department celebrated its 50th anniversary with a chicken barbecue and fun for all. 



The Somerville Volunteer Fire Department is located at 941 Rockland Rd in Somerville. 

The original VFD was formed in 1965 by Orrin Crummett and Donald Hewett. 

2015 marks its 50th anniversary of serving Somerville and neighboring towns. 

Meetings are held on the first Monday of every month at the South Station. Anyone is welcome to join.
