The safety of the citizens of Barre is greatly important to us. Public Safety departments include the Police Department, the Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and Emergency Management. Barre Town has full time, twenty-four hour Police and EMS (ambulance) departments. The on-call Fire Department maintains a roster of 40 members assigned to one of two stations. A part-time Emergency Management (civil defense) director assists the Town Manager to plan and coordinate Emergency Management activities.
