Fire Districts

Each of the five Barnet villages is a fire district, or as they are sometimes called, a “village district.” These districts were formed by petition to the Selectboard and created to serve special purposes. Originally they primarily served the function of providing local, and therefore prompt, firefighting services – hence the title “fire district.” Their roles now vary widely, but consist primarily of providing and maintaining street lights, sidewalks, and other village assets.
