The Brewster Fire & Rescue Department proudly serves the residents of the Town of Brewster which is located on the bay side of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Brewster is known as the “Sea Captain’s Town” and was incorporated in 1803.
At one time there were 99 sea captains living in Brewster and a number of their homes can still be seen along Main Street today.
Today, Brewster is primarily a bedroom-type community and home to 11,000 year-round residents with a seasonal population swelling to nearly 35,000 in the summer. The department protects 23 square miles, including popular recreational areas such as Nickerson State Park, several miles of beach along Cape Cod Bay and Long Pond, the Cape’s largest lake.
The department operates out of the headquarters station located on historic Route 6A and provides a full range of emergency and non-emergency services through a combination of career and paid on-call personnel.
