The Essex Fire Department, located in Essex, Vermont, is a paid on-call department providing fire protection and emergency medical first response services.

We primarily serve the Town of Essex, and routinely provide mutual aid to Essex Junction and Westford. We also respond to neighboring towns, the interstate, and the airport if requested. Our station is located at 190 Sand Hill Road, but you can send mail to 81 Main Street, Essex Junction, VT 05452.

If you think you have an emergency, big or small, please CALL 911 now! Do not call our station directly.

If you're not reporting an emergency but have an urgent concern or question, please call the Essex Police dispatch line at 802-878-1331 for immediate assistance. They can assist or dispatch if necessary.  Our station is not usually staffed, thus you are more likely to reach our voicemail rather than speak with one of our members. 

Otherwise if you have non-emergent reason to contact us, such as inquiries about joining, cadet program, arranging tours, fire safety questions, etc. please call 802-878-5308 or email Chief Cole at Follow us on Facebook for latest news and photos.
