Brighton, N.Y. - Brighton’s Town Supervisor said the Henrietta Fire District has agreed to provide fire coverage to West Brighton.
Residents voted in August to dissolve the West Brighton Fire District and the town contracted with Rochester’s fire department to cover fires and other emergencies.
If the new proposal is approved, the Henrietta Fire District would serve West Brighton.
In a press release Tuesday, Brighton Town Supervisor Bill Moehle said, “The Henrietta Fire District has a strong reputation for providing excellent service, and this plan will meet our goal of providing the best possible fire and emergency service in West Brighton on a cost effective basis.”
Brighton’s Town Board will vote on adopting the plan February 27.
There will also be a public hearing on April 10 to get feedback from the community.
The Rochester fire department will continue to provide fire protection and EMS service until this transition is completed which should happen in the summer or early fall.
The Town of Brighton is still involved in litigation with the West Brighton Fire Department and the town has asked a judge to order the West Brighton Fire Department to turn over the West Henrietta Road fire station and its other assets so they can be used for fire protection.
