Brewster Fire Department Responds to Deck Collapse

On Saturday December 20 at 6:26 p.m. the Brewster Fire Department responded to 200 King Philip Road on a reported deck collapse with possible injuries. On arrival at the scene Captain Kevin Varley completed a quick size up of the collapse area and determined the rear deck of the home had collapsed under the weight of several individuals during a holiday party. While the Captain was completing his size-up FF Gary Stobbart initiated medical triage of several patients who were on the deck during the collapse. Upon completion of the assessment all patients refused medical treatment. The area was taped off and secured for further investigation by the Brewster Building Department.
