Brookfield firefighters remove Marine 25 from service for the winter

Brookfield Volunteer Fire Candlewood Company has wrapped up the first boating season of the new Marine 25 vessel.  It was taken out of the water for its yearly maintenance and to be put in storage until next spring.  Fire company officials say this year has been the busiest year on the lake in recent memory and say accepting delivery of the new Marine 25 last year was very fortunate.  This year covered the gamut of fires, water rescues, and dive calls with the Brookfield Police Department.  Their smaller boat, Marine 24 which is housed at Candlewood Company, stays in service all year. During the winter months, Candlewood Company firefighters continue to train on ice rescue tactics for emergencies that occur on Candlewood Lake and Lake Lillinonah year round.
