The Brook-Iroquois Township Volunteer Fire Department serves the Town of Brook and the townships of Iroquois, Washington, and southern Jackson with seven apparatus and 20 volunteers. The department was formally organized on March 7, 1916 by an action by the Brook town board, the same time a water supply system was installed in the town. Prior to this time, residents were alerted that there was a fire by a fire bell which was rung, and any available volunteer grabbed ladders and buckets and ran to the fire to help.
Today, the department operates a medical/command vehicle, two brush trucks, a primary engine, a secondary engine/tanker, and two tankers. They also are proud of their first motorized apparatus, their 1925 Model T chemical/hose truck.
We are very proud and thankful of those who currently volunteer their time and those who have volunteered in the past. Their efforts over the years have gone a long way in helping Brook and the surrounding communities.

Construction on a new firehouse was completed in the Spring of 2011.
