The Extinguisher Pro (Barre)
St. J Fire Extinguisher (St. Johnsbury)
According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), smoke detectors should be tested at least once a month and batteries should be replaced at least twice a year. A good way to help remember to do this is to change your batteries when you change your clocks for daylight saving time — when you spring forward or fall back.
We do not charge for services. Your safety is paramount and we never want assistance for an injury or other type of emergency to be dictated by a financial decision.
We support 45-55 calls per year. All seasons are well represented as our surrounding back country draws outdoor enthusiasts throughout the year.
Stowe Mountain Rescue’s mission is to safely extract a subject from a back-country location. The team is licensed by the Vermont Dept. of Health as a first response agency so we can provide quality medical treatment until we turn over care and transport to a local hospital to Stowe EMS.
Yes, we work closely with many local SAR teams, especially on missions where extensive manpower is required to extract injured people from difficult situations.
Yes, we routinely provide mutual aid support to our neighboring communities, and have a Memorandum of Understanding with the State of Vermont Dept. of Public Safety under which we may be asked to assist in other more distant areas of the State.
We do not provide training to outside organizations, but we do work with other SAR teams in joint training events. Example: Colchester Technical Rescue, VT State Police/Search and Rescue, New England K-9 Search and Rescue.
Mt. Mansfield Ski Patrol is responsible for all in-bounds injuries. Stowe Mountain Rescue is responsible for all events/incidents outside of the ski area boundary. However, we have a very close working relationship and it is not uncommon for us to work together on missions near or in the ski area.
Stowe Mountain Rescue is funded primarily through Town of Stowe tax dollars. We also apply for state and federal grants to supply necessary equipment.
Stowe Rescue Squad was the original provider of emergency medical services in Stowe. In 2008, the Town created the Stowe Department of EMS and took over responsibility for emergency medical services to residents and visitors.
Stowe Rescue Squad occasionally supports Stowe Department of EMS with gifts of equipment. They also provide training for EMS volunteers, as well as community outreach and education.
