Membership Information

Volunteering with the Guilford Volunteer Fire Department is a time consuming effort that may be one of the most rewarding experiences that you could have serving your community.  Firefighters and EMTs are required to be certified by the State of Vermont which requires annual training hours.  Our responders train every Tuesday evening on various fire, rescue, and emergency medical topics.  If you are interested in volunteering, call (802) 254-4413 (leave a message), or email
