Brattleboro firefighters training

Mission Statement

Our mission and number one priority is to deliver the best possible services to the citizens of Brattleboro. We will strive to effectively protect life and property from the effects of fire and all other emergencies and continually look for better ways to improve our services to the people we serve.  


The Brattleboro Fire Department was founded in 1831. It is currently made up of 21 career firefighters who work at the station 24/7 in three shifts working 24 hours with 48 hours off in between. Brattleboro Fire Department also has a call force, dive team, and the administrative staff. Firefighters respond to all nature of emergencies as well as fires, including car accidents, hazardous materials incidents, medical emergencies and wildland fires. All our firefighters are certified as at least Emergency Medical Technicians.  

If you are interested in touring either of our fire stations, feel free to call or stop by at Central Station in downtown or at Station Two in West Brattleboro.
