The Mission of the Brighton Fire Rescue District is to provide effective and efficient emergency services, life safety education, and code enforcement, and to be actively involved in our community.Our key values include honor, courage, commitment, respect and unity. Fire protection in the Brighton area, as in many areas, had its beginning with the growth of a new community. The construction of homes and businesses was close enough to allow rapid and easy fire spread. This brought the essential need for something more than ones own self-protection. Man was once again faced with the fear and need to survive someone else’s fire loss. Men who had the ability and desire to help their fellow man were brought together with one common civic interest; the need to form a unified effort to combat fire; the Brighton Volunteer Fire Department.
