Quite often you will see the Fire Trucks outside with about 25 people moving around and about. Youll hear siren wale, radios being checked, equipment being started and trucks being taken for a road and/or pump test. This team of fire personnel is ever ready to assist their community in the event of an emergency. From the hose to the sharpening of the ax, it all gets checked and prepared.
Through a continuous and progressive training program, The GVFD strives to continually improve the level of service it provides. Training takes place each week in addition to the regular department meeting. Many hours of training is provided each year. We currently hold fire training class at our station to provide the necessary training needed to all area departments. These training classes are mandated by the State to keep the firemen updated.
