Emergency Services/Alerts

Emergency Services are provided in the Town of Orwell by two volunteer organizations partially funded by the Town. The Volunteer Fire Department provides fire protection and the First Response Rescue Squad provides emergency ambulance and rescue squad services. Both organizations are housed on the Orwell Town Fire Station adjacent to the Town Equipment Shed. Police services are provided by the Addison County Sherriff and/or the State Police. In the event of an emergency, contact 911.

    Good morning. Would you mind adding a link to the Orwell Emergency Management’s Facebook page? We add articles of interest (local emergency weather alerts and warnings, seasonal safety messages and school closings) and would greatly appreciate the added exposure on our town website.


    Thank you for your kind consideration.

    Logistics Officer/Co-Emergency Manager

    • Good Afternoon Sandy,

      I added the facebook link for the Orwell Emergency Management on the Town Website under Emergency Services/Alerts. Let me know if it looks good or if any changes are needed.

      Thanks and have a great day,
