Historical Tidbit: Bridgewater Firefighters

Bridgewater Firefighters proudly protect the twenty-eight thousand residents living in an area of twenty-eight square miles.
“The organization of the Bridgewater Fire Department dates back to 1844 as a volunteer fire brigade. In 1923, after a devastating fire at the former Normal School, presently Bridgewater State University, the fire department was reorganized.” The original station was constructed in the 1860’s and additions were made to the building in 1951, 1960, and 1972.
