Old Mystic Fire Department
The Old Mystic Fire Department (OMFD), Mystic Fire Department (MFD), and Poquonnock Bridge Fire Department (PBFD) are 3 of the 7 fire departments within the Town of Groton, in southeastern Connecticut. Each department has its own fire district which governs it. The three departments had an existing partnership for mutual aid, but they lacked a clear way to communicate pre-incident plans, GIS data, and other crucial information.
The fire departments provide the following services to their constituents: fire suppression, hazardous materials mitigation, fire prevention, emergency medical services, advanced rescue techniques, and community education.
OMFD responds to about 1250 incidents per year.
MFD responds to about 750 incidents per year.
PBFD responds to about 1900 incidents per year.
The departments are dispatched by Groton Fire Alarm which dispatches:
- 8 fire departments
- 3 ambulance agencies
- 1 paramedic agency
- 1 police department
What is unique about the city or area they cover?
- Both OMFD and MFD’s fire districts cover 2 towns: Town of Stonington and Town of Groton
- Both towns’ GIS data is used.
- There are similar/same street names between the two towns which creates confusion (ex: Main St. Stonington vs. Main St. Groton).
- A custom translator for CAD had to be built by FH and Adashi for this project.
