The town of Brookfield is a small residential community of approximately 3,400 people located 15 miles west of Worcester Massachusetts. The Fire Department is made up of 27 men and women who provide 24 hour fire protection on a paid on call basis. The fire chief is the only career employee.
The department is structured as follows: Fire Chief, Assistant Chief, two Captains, two Lieutenants, and 21 Firefighters. We also have a small force of auxiliary members that provide support services for the department.
The department provides fire suppression, rescue, and hazardous materials response in addition to code enforcement inspections and fire prevention activities. We operate three fire engines, a tanker, three forest fire units, a squad, and a boat out of one station.
The department was organized in 1855, enjoying a long history of commitment and service to the community. Emergency medical response is provided at the paramedic level by Brookfield Emergency Medical Services, a municipal agency housed in the fire station. Both Departments are committed to providing the highest quality of professional service possible to the citizens we serve.
Our primary operating frequency is 154.7325MHz.
