Get Involved Westport Island

One of the best ways to get to know your neighbors and Westport Island is to get involved.  Our volunteers help shape our community and make it a better place to live.  If you are interested in serving your community by filling a vacant municipal committee or board seat, contact the committee chairperson for more information. Some of the committees that have immediate openings include:

  • Town Hall Committee
  • Board of Appeals
  • Conservation Committee

To learn more about all our committees and municipal boards visit our website here. If there is another committee that you have interest in, please do not hesitate to let us know as well! All volunteers are welcome on Westport Island!

All appointments are made by the Selectmen who can be contacted at 882-8477 ext. 4 or by email at:

Westport Island is also manned by a Volunteer Fire Department. If you have an interest in helping your fellow Westport Islander and would like to be more hands on, the WVFD is always looking for volunteers. There are numerous ways to help at the Fire Department – just ask! Contact Chief Stacey Hutchison at or come by the station (644 Main Rd) on any Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm!
