Premise Search Requests

The Brookline Fire Prevention Division is often asked to search our property database for various pertinent data. These requests frequently seek information pertaining to locations of previous oil tanks and/or their removal.

In order to expedite citizen requests, citizens seeking premise file information under the Massachusetts Public Records Law (G.L. c. 66, s. 10) should email the request to the Town Clerk’s Office. Please insert into the subject line “Premise file search” and please describe in the message body the information you seek. Fire Prevention will review your request and reply within approximately one week with a date and time at which you can come to view the file. The cost of the review is $50.
