The safety of the citizens of Barre is greatly important to us. The Public Safety Department has four main branches, the Police Department, the Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and the Emergency Management Department. 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.
