The Auxiliary for the Middleton Fire Department was formed in 1978 and was named the Middleton and Area Fireflies by its founding members. Ever since its inception, the organization of hard-working individuals has devoted countless hours to raise funds for and provide support to the town’s volunteer firefighters.

Although best known for the quarter of a million dollars donated to the Department over the years, the Fireflies have also been found in the kitchen of the Fire Hall making hundreds of sandwiches for the various crews whenever there has been a major mutual aid fire call in the daytime or in the middle of a stormy winter night.

With most members now in their 70s and 80s, the Fireflies are looking for new members to take up the torch, so to speak. Young or old (male or female), if you would like to contribute in any way at all, there is a place for you in the group.
