Welcome To The Official Website Of The Hinesburg Fire Department
Our plan and goal is to assure the citizens of Hinesburg that fire, rescue and medical services provided by the Hinesburg Fire Department will be of the highest quality in order to meet our community's expectations.
History of the Hinesburg Fire Department
What is the Hinesburg Fire Department? What does it stand for?
The Hinesburg Fire Department (HFD) was started by a group of volunteers in 1943. The volunteers wanted to protect their fellow neighbors and friends from the destruction of fires. Because there was no fire department in Hinesburg after some large fires at Economeau Cheese, the owner signed a contract for fire protection with Burlington Fire Department. That contract motivated volunteers to form the Hinesburg Firemen’s Association (Association) which evolved into today's Hinesburg Fire Department. At that time, the Selectboard appointed Charlie LaBelle as the first Chief. He served until 1959, at which time Kenneth Mashia was appointed as Chief and served until 1967.
An Overview of Emergency Medical Services in Hinesburg
Hinesburg Fire Department provides first response services prior to an ambulance arriving. Our first responders typically are on scene, depending time of day and location in town, within 3-6 minutes of the initial call which is excellent for a volunteer department. Hinesburg Community Police are also licensed EMS providers as part of the Fire Department. The personnel levels of training range from EMR (Emergency Medical Responders), EMT (Emergency Medical Technicians) and AEMT (Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians).
