Congratulations New Fire Brigade Members!

What program makes Kimball Union Academy a truly unique prep school? Fire Brigade. Each year for the last forty years, students and faculty leaders have learned and trained with the Meriden Volunteer Fire Department to form a squad that is on-call to respond to emergencies at any hour of the day. Since Meriden is a commuting community, this group of eleven students play a vital role. While these students are greatly appreciated by the department and surrounding towns, often years later the students recall that their time on the Brigade was one of the most impactful and memorable of their time at KUA. Already the newly elected Brigade members have been involved in fire-drills throughout campus, as well as tool and apparatus training (including auto extraction techniques).
