From The Fire Chief

Welcome to the Barnard Fire Department web page. The Barnard family consists of forty three volunteers from the community and twenty two career staff. They provide fire suppression, rescue, and emergency medical services to the residents and visitors of the Barnard Fire District. Barnard is a very unique fire service, they are the only fire service in Monroe county that provides 24/7 ALS (Advance Life Support) through our paramedic program.

In 2013 Barnard responded to 3128 calls for service. Also in the year 2013 Barnard members had 8100 total training hours. In our field it is very important for the members to have consistent training. Training provides fire fighter safety, and allows us to mitigate a problem efficiently.

It is unfortunate that over the past several years our call response continues to increase. This means we are looking to increase our volunteer membership. If you feel that you can spare some time to help out your community please fill out the application on the volunteer page and drop it off to the firehouse. We would be happy to sit down with you to discuss the requirements of volunteering.
