Brush 1

Hatfield's brush truck is a well-equipped vehicle capable of traversing all sorts of rugged terrain. Brush fires can occur anywhere and for many reasons. Which is why it is important that Hatfield is prepared to respond before they develop into uncontrolled wildfires. Wildland firefighting techniques are used to control brush fires, employing special tools like pulaskis, fire rakes, chainsaws, and leafblowers. Hatfield Brush 1 is equipped with all these tools and more.

Hiring Continually - Call Firefighters/EMTs

As a majority on-call fire department, a large portion of our personnel is made up of citizens from within the commumity. Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and everyone contributes to the common goal. With that said, we are always in need of new members and welcome those who are interested.

We are currently accepting applications for the positions of Firefighter, EMT, Paramedic, or both. No previous training or experience required! We provide all necessary fire training, and are willing to send interested people to EMT class at our expense (with conditions).

Those interested should call the Fire Department at (413)-247-9008, complete the application, or just stop by the station during normal work hours. We have training almost every Thursday at 7pm, and its always open to the public. Click here for an Application.
