The Town is served by a single volunteer fire department that responds to fires and other emergencies in Bethel and neighboring towns. Firemen respond to about sixty calls each year, of which less than 30% are Bethel fires. Neighboring communities’ departments are called in on large fires requiring outside resources per mutual agreements. 

The Bethel Volunteer Fire Department meets at the Fire Station every other Monday at 6:30 PM.
