Brewster Fire & Rescue Station

March 2006

BREWSTER FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Brewster Police and Fire Station on Route 6A has become simply the Brewster Fire & Rescue Headquarters. The station, built in 1974, was vacated by the Police department upon completion of Brewster's new Police Station. The fire department has grown considerably in recent years and will continue to do so as the Town of Brewster grows. The BFD will likely use the former police half of the station for administrative and living space. Smaller vehicles may use the former cruiser bays of the police station. More to follow...

 
HEADQUARTERS RENOVATION REJECTED
The Brewster Fire Department sought funding to renovate headquarters.  Town meeting did not pass the article at a Spring 2002 meeting.
