Dial 911 for Emergencies
The Woodstock Police commits itself to the community to insure quality law enforcement, to safeguard Constitutional rights and maintain public confidence. The police department will strive to enforce our laws in a fair and equal manner, while using discretion appropriately.
Woodstock is along the Route 4 corridor that is part of a major east/west corridor across southern Vermont from New Hampshire to New York. Our average daily traffic is in excess of 10,000 vehicles in a small residential and highly visited tourist community. With this the department must perform duties to assure that vehicles and pedestrians move safely throughout the village. We ask that all motorists obey our posted 25 mph zone limits.

Woodstock Fire-Rescue is committed to providing high quality, essential services in our community and throughout the mutual aid area. For more than a century our department has been at the ready. Today, we respond to hundreds of emergency calls ranging from chimney fires to vehicle accidents, enduring high flood waters to the high temperatures of structure fires.
Our members are our most valuable resource and work hard every day to meet the needs of the town residents and visitors. Our firefighters have dedicated themselves to community service’s highest calling. They are ready on a moments notice to enter potentially dangerous situations to save lives and property of our fellow citizens. Whether through our continuous training and emergency response, compassion in the event of a crisis, or lending a hand at a community event, we are always there.
We provide much more to the community than just fire suppression. The Department has specialty equipment and teams for ice and water rescue, vehicle extrication, wildland search and rescue, and other emergency situations. We also provide fire prevention and community education programs at area schools and public events.
We strive to have a diverse, talented and devoted membership. Interested in becoming a firefighter or EMT? Contact us and maybe you’ll begin one of the most demanding, but rewarding volunteer services you’ve ever experienced.
Sprinklers and smoke alarms can save your life .

Woodstock Ambulance Services
The Woodstock Ambulance Service is located at the Woodstock Emergency Services Building with the Woodstock Town Police and the Woodstock Town Fire Department. The Woodstock Ambulance Service has dedicated trained emergency medical personnel available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Alan Beebe is the Ambulance Coordinator. The department consists of approximately 25 members.
The town has mutual aid agreements with the Town of Hartford and the City of Lebanon to provide paramedic service when called upon. Woodstock Ambulance Service took delivery of a new 4 x 4 ambulance in the summer of 2008 (2009 F450 LifeLine Ambulance). This vehicle is state of the art and allows our members to perform their duties in the best possible environment for pre-hospital medical care. Many areas we serve were previously inaccessible with two wheel drive. This will add to our ability and efficiency to access our more rural patients. The Woodstock Ambulance Service is very appreciative of the support our town has given us with this new purchase.
In prior years our 4 x 4 vehicle was a 1986 ambulance. This vehicle has been retired as an ambulance and is now in service to the South Woodstock Fire Department as a utility truck.
The individuals who volunteer to be part of our ambulance service are highly trained, dedicated emergency medical personnel. Most are EMT’s and many of our EMT’s have advanced EMT training know as “intermediate” or EMT-1. These folks are trained and licensed to provide a level of care that is intermediate between an EMT and a paramedic. We are all very thankful to these volunteers for the excellent service they provide to our community.
The Woodstock Ambulance Service is accepting new volunteers. If you have an interest in volunteering as an EMT, please call Alan Beebe at 457-2326 during normal business hours. There are many ways to get involved and become part of this great service.
