The Brighton Area Fire Authority is a combination fire department, relying on a dedicated core of paid-on-call firefighters who work with our full-time staff to meet the growing emergency services needs of our community.  The Authority has five fire stations that are located throughout the City of Brighton, Brighton Township, and Genoa Township.  Paid-on-call firefighters respond from home, work, or while out in the community.  They are notified via a minitor or pager which is activated by our central dispatch.  The staff reports to their station and responds to the emergency on the necessary apparatus.  BAFA is continually hiring and training new paid-on-call firefighters due to the natural attrition of firefighters.


The job of a Firefighter is a challenging position.  Firefighters must be able to respond quickly and coordinate their activities as an effective work team.

Firefighters perform work activities in a number of areas:

  • Risk Reduction
  • Firefighting
  • Rescue and Extrication
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Hazardous Materials Mitigation
  • Disaster Response
  • Community Risk Reduction


Being a Firefighter is a very physically demanding position.  Firefighters typically carry 80-100 lbs. of equipment such as axes, hoses, ladders, and chain saws.  The work may include climbing stairs and ascending and descending on ground extension ladders.  Firefighters work at heights and in confined spaces to fight fires and rescue victims.  When not responding to fires or emergency events, Firefighters are engaged in community public education, continuous training activities, maintaining the fire apparatus, fire equipment, and the fire stations.
