Our response area covers 19.8 square miles of residential, commercial and industrial areas… along with two lakes. We respond to over 1,500 calls per year for incidents such as fire suppression, emergency medical aid, motor vehicle accidents, vehicle extrications, hazardous materials incidents, marine accidents, ice and cold-water rescues and mutual aid assistance to surrounding towns. We also inspect and test more than 148 cistern systems with dry hydrants that are used as water sources for fire suppression.
There is a Paramedic and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) stationed in the old Center Station Firehouse, located on the corner of Whisconier and Obtuse Hill Road, during the daytime. Volunteer EMT’s “fill-in” at night and weekends or when additional resources are needed during the day.
Since it’s origin, hundreds of individuals have donated their time and energy to provide protection and peace of mind to the people of Brookfield. We are a group of dedicated men and women who provide the highest level of proficiency in caring for our community. We currently have over 75 active volunteer members.
