Stowe Fire Department


The Stowe Fire Department, an all-volunteer agency, has served Stowe’s residents and visitors for over 100 years.

We’re committed to protecting our town’s life, property, and environment through prevention, education, and fire service. As an organization, we value ongoing training, safety, and professionalism.

Because Stowe’s population includes both 4,300 year-round residents and 8,000-10,000 annual visitors and covers the second largest Vermont town in area, our team must remain nimble and flexible. In addition, Stowe is a member of mutual aid systems in Lamoille and Washington counties, working alongside Waterbury, Morristown, and Cambridge fire departments.

Our job is to be ready if you need us!

Stowe Fire Department does not test or recharge fire extinguishers, but there are a number of Vermont businesses that do, such as:

Vermont Fire Extinguisher (Barre)
Vermont Life Safety (Bolton)
FireProTec (Colchester, Rutland)
D&M Fire and Safety Equipment (Richmond)
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.

For people who want to serve their community in the fire service, there’s such a variety of jobs and responsibilities that every volunteer has a place.

We welcome any man, woman, or student with a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and servant’s heart. Volunteering at the fire service means learning new skills, teamwork, fire science, fire pumps and equipment, hand tools, public safety, and education—and lots of camaraderie! Stowe firefighters are paid volunteers, which means they’re paid when they respond to calls and for their biweekly trainings.
