Our essential mission and number one priority as members of the Brattleboro Fire Department is to provide the best possible service to the Citizens of Brattleboro.

We will strive to protect lives and property from the effects of fire and all other emergencies, and will continuously look for ways to improve our services to the people we serve.




It is with deep regret that the Brattleboro Fire Department announces the death of T. Howard Mattison, former Fire Chief for the Town of Brattleboro. Chief Mattison, former Road Foreman and Fire Chief in Bennington, VT, was hired as the Fire Chief in Brattleboro in March of 1959 by then Town Manager George Miller. Chief Mattison brought new life and enthusiasm into the Brattleboro Fire Department, making it one of the finest in the state. He was known for his "no nonsense approach", and his command presence at an emergency was second to none.
Chief Mattison retired on March 31, 1989 after 30 years of dedicated service to the Town of Brattleboro.
Rest in Peace Chief Mattison, you will be missed.
