Engine Company 6 (formerly South Meriden VFD)

Engine Company 6 is staffed by the South Meriden Volunteers and is an auxiliary company utilized for Emergency Services to the community. Engine 6 is staffed for all greater alarm fires, and times when call volume is high. Additionally the volunteers of Engine Company 6 staff special events in the community of South Meriden.

Company 6 is always looking for volunteers. Successful candidates should be Meriden residents (or live within 5 miles of Meriden), and over 18 years of age. Applicants must be a high school graduate, be in good health, have a clean police record, a valid driver’s license and reliable transportation. We accept volunteers who live outside of Meriden area if they are already certified with a minimum FF-1 and EMS certification. Applications are accepted year-round but the new recruits process is normally done three times per year.

Engine 6 trains weekly (Mondays) and most of the members are at least Firefighter II certified and carry an EMT certification. Several are Fire Officer and Instructor certified.

We respond to about 200 calls per year. We are proud to staff Engine 6 with a minimum of three firefighters and can increase depending on availability and task requirements. In addition, we proudly staff Brush 1, the cities only Brush company.

Please remember. Vehicles displaying flashing blue lights are firefighters or EMTs responding to an emergency. Please yield right-of-way to them.
