The Town of Huntington has a Volunteer Fire Department that averages 18 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/EMTs.

The Huntington Fire Department (HFD) covers all Fire, Medical, HAZMAT and Heavy Rescue calls for the Town of Huntington, as well as mutual aid to other surrounding towns as needed.

The HFD responds to approximately 45 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 Huntington does not have its own ambulance, which makes the Department’s first responders a very valuable asset to the community.
