The Tremont Volunteer Fire Department was incorporated in 1949 by a private group of volunteers who were charged with protecting all property from fire and with assisting in other emergencies. It initially relied on various fund raising projects for its income but now is supported by the Town with an annual budget of approximately $80,000. The department has a fleet of 5 engines, a cold water rescue boat and a Crew cab pickup which are kept in two fire houses, one in each end of town.
It has a roster of approximately 21 active members who experience about 50 calls per year. The Department is also a signatory on a mutual aid agreement to assist any fire department in Hancock County if called upon. Even though the original sirens are still on the roofs of the two firehouses, the Department now communicates using UHF radios on the frequency of 154.250 MHz. Its calls are handled by the Southwest Harbor Emergency Dispatch center. Read More About the Department
