Forty Years With Stamford Fire Company

At last night’s monthly meeting of The Stamford Fire Company, Chief Ethier took a moment to recognize two long time members of the dept.

If you see them, say Congratulations to Mike Kurpiel and Bill Levine – both registering 40 years of volunteer service for the Town of Stamford.

Below is a list of members who have been with the dept for 15 or more years!

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a member of the Stamford Volunteer Fire Co for fire or medical (they do it all), feel free to come to the dept on Stebbins Lane on any non-holiday Monday Night between 7pm and 9pm and introduce yourself and get the grand tour.

  1. Congratulations and MANY THANKS to all of you, especially the veteran firefighters of Stamford!
    When we needed them at a home medical emergency several years ago, they were the BEST. Here in five minutes or less and lined up with all the necessary equipment to handle the emergency.

  2. Congratulations Bill and Mike, in particular, but to all of you!
    As a community and as individuals, we have been blessed to have these dedicated volunteers serving our community faithfully and selflessly for decades.
    They are well trained, skilled, professional and compassionate. In addition, we have no idea how much behind-the-scenes time is put in by the officers/members/board members to seek and write grants used to purchase needed equipment, which reduces the raise-and-appropriate portion of our town budget.
    They respond not only to fires, but to car accidents, flooding situations, and medical emergencies, as well as protecting our children during Trick or Treat, and likely other unique situations I am not even aware of.
    Having lived in this community all my life, I have seen this volunteer department consistently seek to improve and ‘keep up with the times’ to keep our community safe. Many hours are spent checking on the firehouse and equipment, doing repairs and improvements and attending continuing education that we never see. Last year (I think it was last year), a history video was put together and shown during a ceremony honoring long-term members. That took hours of work.
    I am so proud of these men and women, grateful for them, and thank them from the bottom of my heart. We need to thank their families as well; likely many a supper plate has been left partially eaten and cold over the years or the entire household awakened in the middle of the night. Not to mention, the worry and concern while their loved one is at the scene of an emergency. We appreciate the Auxiliary who helps out when needed at an extended emergency or with fundraising.
    Please, when you see them, thank them!
    May God bless you individually and collectively and keep you safe.
