Since 1967, the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department protects the towns of Brussels, Union and Gardner in southern Door County in Wisconsin. The boundaries of the fire district include all residents and all the property in the towns of Brussels, Union, and Gardner.
When the department was started, twenty six volunteers served the community and now that number has grown to around fifty well trained community members.
The members of the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department are dedicated to providing public safety services to the citizens of our fire district, that result in improved quality of life and peace of mind. As a team, we will strive to minimize losses and suffering through emergency service delivery, public education, public information and community service activities. We will treat those we serve and each other in a manner that is honest, fair, and unbiased. We will honor our heritage, actively participate in our community, and serve with integrity. We strive to support the individual development, personal satisfaction and pride of all members, and endeavor to uphold the unique camaraderie and trust that is the fire service.
