-------------------------------------------- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ----------------------------------------HARTFORD FIRE DEPARTMENT LAUNCHES FIREHOUSE TOUR OF LIGHTS AND FIRE
STATION DECORATING CONTEST
December 14, 2016 Today, the Hartford Fire Department (HFD) is launching its, Hartford Firehouse
Tour of Lights and Fire Station Decorating Contest. The self-guided, Hartford Firehouse Tour of
Lights, includes eight of Hartfords twelve fire stations, and will last through the holiday season. The same
eight fire stations are also competing in the first annual, Fire Station Decorating Contest. Because all of the
fire stations who participated has done such a great job, Chief Freeman has decided to allow the 7,473
followers of the Hartford Fire Department Facebook page decide who the winning fire station is by using a
polling application. The winner will be announced Monday, December 19, 2016 and will receive the
Championship trophy and bragging rights for a year.
I am very proud of the fact that our Hartford Firefighters allocated their personal resources on this
department initiative which was meant to build teamwork, morale, and community engagement, said Fire
Chief Reginald Freeman. They truly did this for their neighborhoods and city which has spread joy to
anyone who has driven or walked by. The eight fire stations participating in both the Firehouse Tour of
Lights, and Fire Station Decorating Contest, are as follows:
