Hinesburg Fire Department and First Response

The Town of Hinesburg has a Volunteer Fire Department that averages 30-35 active members. The members are all volunteers from within the town, who are very dedicated to serving the community in which they live as Firefighters and First Responder/EMT's.

The Hinesburg Fire Department (HFD) covers all Fire, Medical, HAZMAT and Heavy Rescue calls for the Town of Hinesburg and the Town of St. George, as well as mutual aid to other surrounding towns as needed. The HFD responds to approximately 400 calls per year. The HFD has a First Response license with the State of Vermont which allows its medically-certified members to respond to medical emergencies and car accidents to treat patients while waiting for the responding ambulance.

The Town of Hinesburg does not have its own ambulance, which makes the Department's first responders a very valuable asset to the community.

Strategic & Capital Funding Plans

The Hinesburg Fire Department has developed Strategic and Capital Funding Plans for the organization. These plans includes the results of intensive surveys, the department's vision and mission statements, and strategic objectives for the department.
