We Fight Fires, and So Much More

We're called a fire department, but fighting fires is just the start of what we do for Pawlet. We are an all-hazard emergency response organization, responding to fires, gas and water emergencies, vehicle indicents, hazardous materials releases, and more. Whether it is a propane leak, a car crash, electrical wires down, a wildland fire, or a house fire, the PVFD is there providing professional, courteous assistance to our neighbors. We also develop and maintain emergency water supply infrastructure for our community. Our volunteers do all this without a cent of monetary compensation.

Make Sure Your Address Marker is Visible

Imagine calling the fire department, police, or rescue squad, and seeing them go right past your house beacuse they can't tell which driveway is yours. This is scary, but it happens. Help us out by making sure that your address can't be missed. Big, bold address markers can make all the difference when seconds count. Got a shared driveway, or a driveway that forks? Post signage so that emergency responders are guided from the main road all the way to your home.
