The patch design for the new town-wide fire department, unveiled at a recent selectboard meeting, highlights unity with the town logo at the center.
Town Manager Aaron Frank unveiled the patch design at a selectboard meeting on March 17.
The Colchester Fire Department brings together two veteran departments serving Colchester: the Malletts Bay Fire Department (MBF) and the Colchester Center Volunteer Fire Company (CCVFC). Saint Michael's College Fire and Rescue also provides services to the town as a battalion of CCVFC since its inception; they will remain separate from the Colchester Fire Department but will still provide services on a contract basis.
Fire services will be consolidated by July 1, 2020, under the management of town-wide Fire Chief Steve Bourgeois.
