The Hartford area has a rich history of firefighting, beginning with the bucket brigades of early colonial history. As devastating blazes razed many key buildings and entire neighborhoods, these small teams developed into large volunteer groups.

The evolution of these brave firefighting groups is richly chronicled in Greater Hartford Firefighting.
