The Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department is a nonprofit emergency services organization dedicated to protecting life, property, and the environment. We conduct fire suppression, rescue, and other emergency response operations at a moment’s notice, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Based from a station on Rt. 133 in Pawlet Village, we are the first-due fire response agency for a 25 square mile district, encompassing the eastern half of Pawlet and adjoining parts of Rupert, Danby, and Tinmouth. We also provide fire protection and emergency response to surrounding fire districts through a robust system of mutual aid, in which neighboring fire departments call upon one another for assistance, enhancing preparedness throughout the region.

Like many fire departments in Vermont today, the Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department is an independent 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, not a municipal agency. Our department is financed partially by the Town of Pawlet and partially by the general public, by way of donations and fundraisers. Our department is one of nine fire departments in Western Vermont dispatched by the Washington County Department of Public Safety, based in Fort Edward, New York.

Pawlet’s fire department is an all-volunteer outfit, comprised entirely of individuals who donate their time without monetary compensation.
