The Brentwood Sustainability Committee will advise the Mayor and Council on ways to achieve certification for Sustainable Maryland status and to offer suggestions to improve municipal operations with sustainability
initiatives that are environmentally and economically sound. The primary charge of the Committee will seek out opportunities that increase environmental stewardship, inspire change, and positively impact residents.
Brentwood Volunteer Fire Company
In 2004, the Brentwood, Mount Rainier, and Cottage City Volunteer Fire Departments consolidated their equipment into Bunker Hill Station located on Rhode Island Avenue within Brentwood. This station now serves the five communities:
- North Brentwood
- Mount Rainier
- Colmar Manor
- Cottage City.
The Brentwood Volunteer Fire Department was organized in 1922 with 35 charter members and an old horse-drawn hook and ladder. Ever since, they have provided the town with dedicated fire suppression and medical support.
This group supports the fire department through fund raising efforts. They also provide food and services to firemen during long-term engagements.

Senior Citizens Group
In 1969, this group started as an official senior club for social discussion. Although the official club has since been dissolved, the local seniors still meet regularly on the first and third Wednesday of each month in the common room of the Brentwood Town Hall.
