Brooksville, Maine Welcomes You!



Brooksville Maine is a small coastal town with a laid-back community

lifestyle and diverse industries from fishing to plumbing to computer 

graphics and marketing.

We hope you will enjoy our  website!  



Hello Brooksville,

I hope you had a safe, filling and happy Thanksgiving.  We've had a couple of days to relax and reassess as we enter the Holidays and the last month of 2020.  What a year! (That's all I've got)

 Each day we hear that the COVID 19 case numbers are increasing. Scary, but there is good news, a vaccination, actually 3 of them, are on the way. However we can't let our guard down until they actually arrive at a doctors office near us!  We have to hang in there a bit longer.....

....so as we have done throughout the past 8+ months we need to continue to practice the steps which have kept our numbers and percentages down compared to so much of the country. 
   Practice safe and social distancing.         Wear a mask when around others.
   Wash your hands frequently. 
Hopefully it'll be for just a bit longer!

Tonight we have something else to think about. Though warm, it looks like some or all of us may lose power.

Storm info -
Since we were last in this position the power company has changed ownership again. Versant's outage form seems very similar to Emera's and equally user friendly.  

Ok, you all know what to do -
1. Have your electric bill with account number somewhere easily accessible. (email and phone numbers to report an outage)
2. Jot your physical address, contact info and zip code on a piece of paper and leave it with your electric bill info.
3. Make sure to charge your phone(s)
4. Have your flashlight close at hand.
5. Draw off some water.

VERSANT POWER contact info

As always, remember to check in on your neighbors in the morning. A quick phone call from a friend is always appreciated! Please feel free to share this message.

Stay safe, be well, & be kind Brooksville,
Gayle

(Below you will find a notice from the Broadband Committee regarding Brooksville's current broadband service and a link to test the speed of the service you currently have.)

The Maine Broadband Coalition is asking all Maine residents to do an Internet speed test on their computers/tablets/cell phones connected to Wi-Fi in order to determine the spectrum of internet speeds in all of our towns.The results of these tests will determine in part where the Maine broadband funding will be prioritized and should help all towns to gather the necessary data to submit for grants elsewwhere. In Brooksville, the internet work group is requesting that everyone possible run the test so that we have excellent quality data for Brooksville. Almost none of us have acceptable broadband speeds and if we can demonstrate this with a large number of participants, it hopefully will improve our chances of any state funding that is available. It's very easy to do. Go to the Maine broadband coalition website: 
 

Read the instructions and scroll down to "run the test". It takes only a minute to determine your speed and have it entered into the Maine Broadband Coalition database. You can then look at the map of Brooksville to see what the internet speeds are in various locations in town. The yellow dots have higher speeds (but still inadequate) and typically are closer to the Consolidated Communications substations. Your dot will not be shown immediately but should be posted later.
