Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company is postponing their Annual Fund Drive Campaign from this coming Sunday and Monday, to the fall. It will be held September 16th and 17th. Department leaders says after a grueling few weeks of storm cleanup, emergency responses, and assisting members and neighbors with disaster needs, they need time to rest and recover.
The clean up effort is continuing in Brookfield.
The firefighters have thanked residents for their support and generosity during the macroburst.
Chief Wayne Gravius and President Paul Corsak say the storm initiated the largest single-event emergency response in Connecticut’s history. 68 Brookfield fire and EMS volunteers and 74 Connecticut Fire Departments responded to an unprecedented number calls for emergency assistance. Brookfield volunteers logged 2,934 hours in response.
