Branford Fire Department Staffing Plan:

The Branford Fire Department has developed a staffing plan to raise awareness about the critical staffing shortage caused by a decrease in volunteer personnel and an increase in service calls. The plan carefully balances recognized national standards on fire suppression staffing and deployment with our community's specific needs and fiscal responsibility. You'll find the plan informative and helpful, with live links to supporting documents and important information to help you make an informed decision about the future of the Branford Fire Department.
