Thank you for Celebrating 100 years of GPFD with Us! 

What does 100 years of fire service mean for GPFD? Fire fighters black and white edit

Not many organizations in this ever changing world celebrate a 100 year Anniversary; the reason we are still here is because there is a need for our services in our community. There is the same need today that there was in 1915 when we were established. The services we offer now are so much more than just firefighting, including: 

  • 911 Dispatch
  • Fire Prevention
  • Fire Suppression
  • Water Rescue
  • Hazmat
  • Technical Rescue
  • Medical Co-response
  • Building Pre-Planning
  • Building Fire Inspection
  • Fire Investigation and more.

How does the GPFD feel about their 100th Anniversary? 

Just as the tagline says from 100 years ago, proud. Your GPFD is “Proudly Serving Since 1915”
