September 2019 – West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department Installs Grant-Funded Dry Hydrant: The fire department has installed a new pressurized rural fire protection hydrant located near the intersection of Rt. 153 and Betts Bridge Road. This will allow us to provide over 1000 gallons per minute and load tankers without the aid of a pump. We now have 12 dry hydrants and 2 pressurized hydrants in the West Pawlet fire district. This hydrant project was made possible by grant & design assistance provided by Vermont Rural Fire Protection Task Force under the Vermont Association of Conservation Districts. Grant funding for this project came from the Vermont Departments of Public & Fire Safety and the US Forest Service via Vermont Forests Parks & Recreation. The West Pawlet Fire Department would like to thank the community members of the Villages of West Pawlet & Pawlet for their support.
