Volunteer Fire Department
The Westbrook Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1921 as a volunteer organization to provide fire protection for the Town of Westbrook.
The department is the first responder to all emergencies and provides fire protection and prevention education to residents.
The Town of Westbrook and the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) limit open burning for public health and safety reasons.
Open burning is defined as the burning of any matter in such a manner that the products of combustion resulting from the burning are emitted directly into the ambient air without passing through a stack or flue. Open burning pollutes the air and can make it difficult for people with respiratory problems to breathe, particularly for those in densely populated areas. Open burning can create nuisance odors and smoke that may adversely affect your neighbors.
Loss of control in the midst of open burning can result in forest fire and destruction of property. When conducting any type of burning, the utmost caution must be exercised to prevent injury to yourself or family members, and to prevent damage to your home or any neighboring properties.
