What you are about to read (if you haven't been scared off by the length of it) comes directly out of our 50th Anniversary publication. The gap between 1987 and the present will soon be filled but for you history buffs, what's here now is the good stuff. Special thanks to Scott Yeomans, President of the Andover Historical Society, who wrote all this. Click for History 
A fire apparatus, fire engine, fire truck, or fire appliance is a vehicle designed to assist in fighting fires by transporting firefighters to the scene and providing them with access to the fire, along with water or other equipment. In some areas, the terms fire engine and fire truck represent different types of firefighting apparatus. Click for Apparatus

Make sure all family members know what to do in the event of a fire. Draw a floor plan with at least two ways of escaping every room. Make a drawing for each floor. Dimensions do not need to be correct. Make sure the plan shows important details: stairs, hallways and windows that can be used as fire escape routes. Click for Safety Tips

Andover Food Pantry  The Department is, and has been for some time, collecting canned goods, non perishable items, and pet food for the  Andover Food Pantry. Help your neighbors in need. Your donations can be brought to the firehouse Wednesday evenings from 7 PM to 9 PM or by calling 860-706-3074.  Hellooo... Where Are You?  It's pretty sad when the ambulance is called to go into neighborhoods with houses that cost over a half a million dollars  and we can't find the caller easily because there's either no house number visible  or the number that is there is some cheesy, one inch tall, non-reflective, Wal-Mart special.  We are offering inexpensive, well-made reflective signs for sale. The cost for the signs with brackets are $12.00 each. $10.00 without brackets.  Drive by your Andover Volunteer Fire Department  and you'll see a blue one for the house across the street and a green one for the fire house.  You can't miss them.              Click here for Reflective Address order form  or stop by the fire house any Wednesday evening. What a great present. Please number your house so we can find you! We're always looking for a few good men and women.  The Andover Volunteer Fire Department is looking for members to serve as Firefighters, EMTs, and/or Fire Police.
