It is the mission of the Blue Hills Fire Department to provide the protection of the lives and property of the residents and those who work in or visit the Blue Hills Fire District in the town of Bloomfield from the dangers associated with fires, life threatening emergencies, and hazardous chemical releases from accidents and natural disasters.
We will continue to transform today’s fire/rescue service into a progressive proactive and professional service, a service that will exceed today’s demands, and meet tomorrows. We will provide excellent customer service and exceed the expectations of the people we serve, both internally and externally. We must be responsive to the changing needs of our customers.
