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 firefighters and approximately 85 volunteer firefighters who work together to accomplish this mission.
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."
