Greenwich Fire Department
The GFD & COVID-19
DONATION REQUEST: The Greenwich Fire Department is seeking donations of N95 (or similar) masks for the protection of our Fire Responders. This is for the physical masks only, not a request for a monetary donation.
Deputy Chief Larry Roberts
ALL FIRE STATIONS IN GREENWICH ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY PLEASE DIAL 911
To maintain the ability to serve our Town the GFD has implemented the following:
- All fire stations located in Greenwich have restricted non-GFD personnel from entering the building except during an actual emergency. Please call our offices to see if we can assist you with normal business in a remote manner. Our office number is: (203) 622-3950.
- All public events scheduled to take place inside any firehouse have been postponed indefinitely.
- All public education events have been postponed indefinitely.
- Operational guidelines have been altered to protect the public and our employees and to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These operational changes will not change the quality of service provided to the public.
Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.
The mission of the Greenwich Fire Department (GFD) centers upon the preservation of life and property within the Town of Greenwich against the ravages of fire. The GFD is a combination fire department that consists of 106 uniformed career and approximately 85 volunteer firefighters who work together to accomplish this mission.
Training & Equipment:
Responding to over 4,200 emergency calls annually, the men and women of the GFD are trained and equipped to handle a wide range of threats. This all-hazard approach prepares our firefighters for many types of calls ranging from minor fire alarms to structure fires, motor vehicle accidents, and hazardous materials incidents. Fire apparatus consists of 13 Engines, 3 Ladder Trucks, and a Heavy Rescue. The Greenwich Fire Department operates this equipment out of eight fire houses within Greenwich (and Banksville, New York).
"The only good fire is the fire that has been prevented."
