Brentwood Fire & Rescue

Brentwood Fire & Rescue Brentwood Fire & Rescue is a combination paid and call-paid department protecting 4400 residents. The department responds to over 1100 calls for service.

The Brentwood Fire Department has a long and proud history, beginning with the formation of the Brentwood Fireman's Association in 1942. The association was formed by William Bartlett Sr. and John Dodge. In 1949, under the leadership of President William Yeany, the association with a handful of volunteer firemen built, at no cost to the town, the Memorial Fire Station. The Firemen's Association raised the money for the station by running whist parties, carnivals, field days, and lawn parties. The lumber came from the town forest located near the Congregational Church now called the Pilgrim United Church of Christ on Middle Road. The Fire Station was dedicated to World War II veterans and the upstairs hall was dedicated to a fallen WWII son, Gordon Block. In 1960 and again in 1980, the association expanded the fire station with proceeds from Friday night bingo, carnivals, musters, Sunday morning breakfasts, and yard sales. The 1960 addition consisted of 3 additional bays, and in1980, 2 more bays were added. The Brentwood Fire Association also put together the town’s first fire engine. Prior to their work, Brentwood residents had to rely on surrounding towns for a fire engine. Those who had a fire had to pay $25.00, or more, to the towns that sent equipment. By the 1960s, it became apparent to the volunteer firemen that the town was in need of ambulance service and the Brentwood Volunteer Ambulance Association was formed. It supported the training and conducted fund raising needed to insure it could meet the needs of the town and state regulations. The first ambulance was a Chevrolet Carry-all secured from the civil defense surplus. The next ambulance was a used Pontiac that was bought by the town for $600. The town's third ambulance was bought with a donation made by the late Jennie Shannon of Windy Brook Farm. In the late 1990's the ambulance association was dissolved and became one with the Firemen's Association and the department became the Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department. Today, ambulance services are charged on an ability-to-pay basis and the proceeds are used to fund training, supplies, labor and the replacement of ambulances as needed. In the beginning, Brentwood’s population was less than 800 residents and all the firemen lived in and, for the most part, worked in Brentwood. The Firemen's Association and Fire Department had a total membership of about 30 and the only requirement was a willingness to help your neighbor when you were called. Today, with the population in excess of 4400 the Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department is a Combination Call/Paid Department. The department membership consists of 2 full-time firefighter/EMTs, part-time fire chief, part-time fire inspector and 30 paid call (part-time) firefighters and EMTs. These dedicated men and women staff 2 ambulances, 3 engines, 1 heavy rescue and a forestry responding to over 1000 calls for service each year. The Town of Brentwood is protected Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., by the full and part-time personnel. Nights and weekends the town is protected by the numerous paid call fire and ambulance personnel who provide the additional coverage, responding from their homes. ~Serving with Honor, Courage, Dedication and Pride since 1942~

The NH State Fire Marshal's Office (NHFMO) would like to remind everyone that “microwaving their masks to kill germs” is a fire hazard and an extremely bad idea. Cloth masks can overheat quickly and catch fire. Disposable masks also have a metal nose wire and can cause sparks, a fire, and/or break your microwave.

The CDC recommends properly sterilizing masks with detergent in the washing mashine.

I know we are all going a little crazy as we practice social distancing.

I have received several requests for us to participate in various functions. Parades for birthdays, or holidays, to help boost spirits.
As much as I would like to fulfill all these requests, we are also trying to maintain social distancing for the protection of our members as well as the public.
Therefore, currently we are unable to do so.

The Brentwood Fire Department would like to thank all of you for your continued support as we continue to work through this process.
May your family stay safe and healthy as we move forward.

Thank you from the Brenwtood Fire Department

Office of Public Affairs

Acting Secretary Chad Wolf Statement on the REAL ID Enforcement Deadline

“Due to circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the national emergency declaration, the Department of Homeland Security, as directed by President Donald J. Trump, is extending the REAL ID enforcement deadline beyond the current October 1, 2020 deadline. I have determined that states require a twelve-month delay and that the new deadline for REAL ID enforcement is October 1, 2021. DHS will publish a notice of the new deadline in the Federal Register in the coming days.

“The federal, state and local response to the spread of the Coronavirus here in the United States necessitates a delay in this deadline. Our state and local partners are working tirelessly with the Administration to flatten the curve and, therefore, we want to remove any impediments to response and recovery efforts. States across the country are temporarily closing or restricting access to DMVs. This action will preclude millions of people from applying for and receiving their REAL ID. Extending the deadline will also allow the Department to work with Congress to implement needed changes to expedite the issuance of REAL IDs once the current health crisis concludes.

“Protecting both the health and national security of the American people continues to be the top priority for the President of the United States and the Department of Homeland Security.”

Subject: New Hampshire Attorney General’s Charitable Trusts Unit Issues Scam Alert as a result of the COVID-19 Outbreak

Date: Thursday, March 26, 2020

Contact: Kate Spiner, Director of Communications
[email protected] / 603-573-6103

Concord, NH – Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald urges people in New Hampshire to be on the alert for charitable giving and consumer product scams related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Scammers may take advantage of fears related to COVID-19 outbreak by selling bogus “treatment” and “prevention” products, establishing fake charities, and sending seemingly legitimate emails with malicious links or attachments.

Be Careful When Making Charitable Donations

· Before making donations to support those who are ill or suffering financially because of the COVID-19 outbreak, do your homework:

· If the appeal claims to be from a charity, make sure that it is registered with the Attorney General’s Charitable Trusts Unit. The list may be found here:;

· If the appeal is for an individual, think hard about donating unless you know the person needing help and that person’s circumstances;

· Do not let anyone rush you into making a donation;

· Check that you are dealing with a legitimate charity or individual and not an “imposter” with a deceptively similar name;

· Do not assume that social media recommendations for donations are legitimate.

Beware of False Claims and Deceptive Marketing

· Do not be tempted by claims and advice on social media and online websites that certain products or treatments can cure or prevent COVID-19.

· There currently are no prescription or over-the-counter pills, vaccines, oils, lotions, or other products available to treat or cure COVID-19. Always check with your health care provider before buying such products.

Be on the Lookout for Phony CDC Emails

Be careful about opening emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or from others claiming to have information about COVID-19. Clicking on links or attachments could cause a computer virus to infect your device.

Stay Informed

From Exeter hospital please call your primary doctor if you feel you need to be tested for COVID 19. The Hospitals are not testing sites. Your doctor can decide if you need to be tested and administer the test if needed.

March 17, 2020

In an effort to clarify Exeter Hospital's role in testing for Covid-19, we are sharing this important information.

This is related to Covid-19 testing only. If you need emergency care the hospital's emergency department is prepared to treat you.

Covid-19 testing only:

The hospital is not a community testing site. If people have a cough, fever, respiratory illness, have traveled outside of the country or believe they may have been exposed to Covid-19 they must contact their Primary care physician.

The hospital can ONLY test individuals who have a physician order or have been sent by the State. If that changes we will update the community.

The hospital is in the process of staging an external testing site on the campus but it is ONLY available by appointment after contacting your primary care provider.

We appreciate you sharing this import clarification, and as always we appreciate your understanding during this very critical time.

Please do your part so Hospitals and Emergency Services can continue to do theirs!
