In 1946, a land owner who worked for Clear Brook Woolen Mill placed a call to Winchester as his home was on fire. Friendship Fire would not respond until the owner would guarantee the amount to be paid. After three calls for help, Mr. Bill Lawrence said he would pay the amount. Unfortunately, it was too late. With the help of Mr. Lawrence and several other landowners in the area, the Clear Brook Volunteer Fire Company was organized.
Since then, the department has taken on several more roles, including EMS services. Along with the volunteer personnel, there are two career personnel on duty 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
The station's apparatus includes:
- 2 ALS (Advanced Life Support) Ambulances
- 2 Fire Engines
- A tanker with 3,000 gallons of water
- A brush vehicle for woods/ grass fires
