Calls for Service
In 2018, the GFD responded to 1,437 calls for emergency service with an average response time of 4:37 minutes. Over the past five years
the GFD has experienced a 40% increase in emergency call volume. The increase in call volume is due to an increased population that is the result of the rapid growth in our community. In 2019, the GFD adopted a five-year Strategic Plan that focuses on meeting the needs of today while preparing for the future. In particular, the GFD will work on replacing an aging fleet of apparatus and find ways to cost effectively
respond to the increasing numbers of emergency incidents they are being called to.
