Mission Statement

Caring. Conscientious. Service. These are the words used to describe the proud volunteer and career members of the Brighton Fire Department. Since 1925, our team has provided the highest value fire-rescue service to our property and home owners by "combining" the benefits of 90 volunteer firefighters with the benefits of 30+ career firefighters. We proudly serve our community by providing both emergency and non-emergency services. BFD depends heavily upon volunteers to serve in firefighting and scene-support roles to not only mitigate emergency situations, but to keep fire property taxes reasonable.

Description

The Brighton Fire Department, as we know it today, was founded in 1925, and provides fire, rescue, and first-response EMS services, as well as safety education, within the Brighton Fire District. The Brighton Fire District covers approximately ⅔ of the Town of Brighton and a small portion of the northwestern portion of the Town of Pittsford. Our district is located in the suburbs of Rochester, New York within Monroe County.

Though our district appears very residential, there is a substantial amount of commercial, office, senior-care, higher-education, and medical facilities, as well as highways. Since 1925, our staffing model has been a combination of career and volunteer personnel. Today, BFD employs career firefighters, officers, and several administrative assistants to supplement its force of approximately 90 volunteers who together train for and respond to approximately 2400 calls annually including Firefighting, Rescue, first-response EMS, Hazardous Materials, and Water Rescue.
