Since 1946, the Castleton Volunteer Fire Department has continued to grow from one fire engine to our current fleet of seven vehicles, with a few in between. The station has moved from the Edward L. Ellis Memorial Station, to the C. W. Mulholland Station and in May of 2015, the department moved to the most recent Fire Station.

The membership of approximately 20 is voluntary. Training and fire prevention awareness have been top priorities of the department. Results from this prioritization show that although our population has doubled since 1969, the number of fire calls has been reduced.

The Castleton Volunteer Fire Departments serves an area of approximately 38 square miles (26,688 acres) that responds to fires and other emergencies in the town and to mutual aid calls as needed by neighboring towns.

The Fire Warden is responsible for taking measures needed to prevent and bring forest fires under prompt control. Permits are required, please contact the Fire Warden for any questions and for Outdoor Burn Permits.
