The Brookfield Volunteer Fire Dept., in conjunction with the Vermont Rural Fire Protection Task Force, has replaced a failing hydrant at 1450 Ridge Road.

This hydrant is a key water source for Brookfield, as it is within 1,500 feet of the Brookfield Elementary School. The new hydrant was replaced with a new gate valve so future maintenance will be much easier.

The Rural Fire Protection Program provided the Brookfield Fire Dept. with a grant to cover the cost of this replacement.
