The Brookhaven Fire Company, Station #52, is 100% Volunteer Firefighters with an active membership of approximately 60 members. The EMS (Emergency Medical Services) is made up of 15 Volunteer EMTs and 10 part time EMTs. The fire company runs 1 Engine, 1 Engine/Rescue, 1 Quint/Ladder, 1 Rescue, 1 Utility Pickup, and 3 BLS (Basic Life Support) Ambulances to provide Fire/Emergency Medical Services to Brookhaven Borough and surrounding communities. We manage an extensive fire prevention program that includes visiting schools and day care centers, sponsoring a Fire Safety Carnival, and educating the public regarding fire prevention and fire safety in the home. We provide fire safety/fire prevention materials and information at the Borough’s Annual Family Day Event.
We run two Annual Fund Drives each year. The Fire Fund Drive starts the first week of January; the EMS Fund Drive starts the first week of May. Note that the fee for EMS services is a subscription and therefore, if paid and you require emergency transportation, you will not incur any out-of-pocket expenses that your insurance company does not cover. Please look for these mailings and support these very important annual fundraising drives.
We are always looking for new members. We pay and provide Fire and EMS training for anyone wishing to join. Any person 14 years or older, interested in joining is asked to come to the firehouse any Tuesday night at 6:00PM or Saturday morning at 9:00am. You may also apply on-line through our website.
