Today, The Lyme Fire Company continues to serve the town of Lyme, with a population of around 2,500 residents in a rural setting of 35 square miles. We still respond out of two stations in the hamlets of Hamburg and Hadlyme, and answer an average of 120 calls for service annually. We continue to meet on Tuesday nights around 7:00PM, please fell free to stop by for a tour of the station and to meet the members, or visit us at our annual BBQ and open house in the summer.
Hamburg station now houses Engine Y-11, Tanker Y-14, Rescue Y-17, Forestry Y-13, a Zodiac boat, and our UTV Gator. Lyme Ambulance Association also houses their ambulance Y-100 in Hamburg. Also housed at hamburg is our award winning 1932 Seagrave, which began serving Lyme as Engine 3 in 1954, and now serves as an antique that has won many awards, including numerous best antique motorized titles at the annual state convention.
Hadlyme station houses Engine Y-21, Engine Y-22 and Forestry Y-24, as well as ambulance Y-200 for the Lyme Ambulance Association.
We continue to respond to just about every type of incident imaginable, though the majority of our calls are still made up of the usual smells and bells.
Many things have changed over the years, but one thing remains constant; Our members remain dedicated and passionate about serving their community. The Lyme Fire Company continues to uphold the tradition that started some 67 years ago with our founding members, and today, it is still true to it’s slogan; “Members Of The Community, Serving The Community.”

Lyme Fire Company 1949-1999
I joined the department as soon as I turned 16 in 2006 and have never looked back. Since joining I have enjoyed new friendships, participated in numerous training and certification classes, and have had the opportunity to attend the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg. The experiences I have had with the department shape the man I am today, pushing me to pursue a career as a Firefighter and a Paramedic. I look forward to interactions with the community and always enjoy answering questions about what we do.
