History

 In 1965, the Town of Fairfield acquired the former Nike missile radar control site from the U.S. Government. The Fairfield Fire Department initially established the Fairfield Fire Department training center at the location and following years of hard work by the Town of Fairfield and our state delegation, the school was officially recognized as a regional fire training school in 1971 (Public Act 71-132).

TRAINING = SAFETY

The mission of the Fairfield Regional Fire School is to support the development of first responders to the highest level of performance with safety and efficiency. We inspire all students to realize their greatest potential with high standards, skills and integrity, through continually evolving technology and principles in meeting the challenges of the communities we serve.
