The very first fire department in Darien was started in January of 1895, what is now the Darien Fire Department. Shortly after the Noroton Fire Department was started on April 24, 1896. These two departments handled all calls for fires within the Town of Darien. Although the Town had two fire departments, there were areas where coverage was poor due to the time it would take for firefighters to arrive. By the time these departments could arrive the building was usually totally destroyed. One of these areas of slow response was the Noroton Heights section of Darien.
