INCIDENT HISTORY - RUN STATS

 

The Brewster Fire Department was established in 1928.  Brewster built a new fire / police station in 1974 on Route 6A.  In 1986 Brewster purchased its first aerial ladder truc, a 1952 Maxim S open cab 75' aerial formerly Fairhaven Ladder 1.  It served until 1993.  In 2001, Brewster Police Department built a new police station and moved out of the Route 6A station, leaving it 100% to the fire department.

April 30, 2010 - Fire Chief Roy E. Jones III retired after many years as Brewster's Chief.
Former Dennis Fire Chief Paul Tucker becomes interim chief.

Major Fires & Emergencies
1988 - Aug 6 - Brewster FD responded to a gasoline tanker overturned on Route 6.  Approximately 5,000 gallons of gas spilled into the ground.  Area water pumps were shut down.  The highway closed for days.  Mutual aid for foam apparatus came from several departments between Otis  and Truro.  No fire occured.
1989 - April 19 - A mother and 2 children were killed in a Route 6 "Suicide Alley" headon accident.  Some 36 people were killed on this narrow stretch of route 6 between 1970 and 1989.
1991 - Dec 25 - A Spectacular Christmas night fire destroyed the historic Beach House and damaged the Crosby Mansion off Route 6A in East Brewster.  The 5 alarm fire destroyed the 3 1/2 story Beach House and damaged the Mansion.  11 engines, 4 ladders, and numerous other apparatus operated all night in cold, windy conditions to control the fires of suspicious origin.

Note:  The run cards above are a partial listing provided for quick reference only.  Additional coverage assignments for other fire departments were left off for simplicity purposes.  These run cards are in effect as of the date posted with them.  It is interesting to use the run cards to track and compare the flow of apparatus to fires in various parts of town.  It is important to remember that these cards reflect resources available when they were written.  Additional apparatus, changes in station assignments, staffing issues, and individual department policies may have changed since these cards were written.  This may  have an effect on the actual apparatus response to incidents when they occur.
