Tom Kelly, owner of Urgent Care in Danbury at 2 Main St., recently donated 1000 black and pink children’s fire helmets to Chief Herald and the Danbury Fire Department.  Tom wanted to support our local Fire Department and remembered the firefighters handing out the children’s helmets at grand opening; he thought it would be perfect!

Chief Herald stated “Fire departments must develop public/private partnership strategies so as to better serve the citizens of our community. With the stresses on budgets that departments are facing across the country, these public/private relationships include cooperative arrangements to educate the public in issues surrounding fire safety education. is an example of one such agency. They joined with the Danbury Fire Department to provide children’s fire helmets to help spread the message of Fire Safety Education. These helmets, in pink and black, are big hits with the children in our outreach programs here in Danbury.  As Fire Chief, I applaud these organizations that reach out to serve the community beyond their normal course of business.  The Fire Department will continue to educate the public to prevent injuries and fires in our community with the cooperation of Urgent Care Danbury and our other public/private partnerships.”

“It’s important to us at to be involved in and support our community”, Tom Kelly stated, “in our first year of operations we have been deeply embraced by Danbury and the surrounding communities.  We are very grateful and saw this as an opportunity to give back”.
