Brewster Fire/Rescue Introduces Their New Fire Safety Education Trailer

On Saturday June 29 members of Brewster Fire/Rescue unveiled their new fire safety education trailer at the Our Lady of the Cape Church annual bazaar. During the day Brewster firefighters educated the public on a number of essential home fire safety tips and best practices, performed tours of the new unit, and distributed fire prevention and life safety literature and other gratuities to visitors. 

Funding for the purchase of the trailer was provided through a $35,500 Assistance to Firefighters Fire Prevention Grant and a $5,000 donation from the Brewster Fire/Rescue Association. Our staff looks forward to using this new educational resource to provide many years of exceptional fire and life safety education to the residents of Brewster and our surrounding communities.

L

On Friday June 21 at 2:47 p.m. Brewster Squad 241 and Ambulance 244 were dispatched to a two car motor vehicle accident with reported injuries at the intersection of Paine’s Creek and Main Street. On arrival Car 232 (Deputy Chief Varley) assumed command and reported two vehicles with minor to moderate front end damage and four occupants requiring medical assessment.  

On arrival of the units Paramedics initiated triage operations and assessment of the patients. As a result of the evaluation it was determined all four occupants suffered non-life threatening injuries. All signed medical care and transport refusals. The Brewster Police provided traffic control during the incident and the Brewster DPW assisted with clean-up of the intersection.      

Brewster Fire/Rescue Announces the Passing of Retired Fire Chief Roy Jones

Brewster Fire/Rescue Conducts Boat Operations Training

On an annual basis Brewster Fire/Rescue responds to a number of reports of distressed swimmers, potential drownings, missing persons, and overturned vessels on Cape Cod Bay and the many ponds located within the Town and Nickerson State Park. These type of incidents increase markedly during the summer months when the community experiences a significant growth in population.
Based on the considerable differences in the bodies of water that we protect, diverse boat equipment, and a lack of launching sites the fire department is compelled to operate under two diverse, yet well-defined operational guidelines when responding to these events. To ensure our personnel are prepared to operate within these directives and employ the essential search and rescue techniques required to achieve a positive outcome at these life-threatening events the department conducts annual refresher training each June. The photos here show members of the department conducting training on Long Pond with the departments 17’ Boston Whaler and 13’ Zodiac fast boat.
