Message from the Fire Chief
Welcome to the Groveland Fire Department. As both a citizen and an employee of Groveland, it is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Fire Chief for the City with Natural Charm.
The Groveland Fire Department (GFD) has an Insurance Services Office (ISO) Public Protection Classification rating of 03/3X, which places GFD in the top 10% of all fire departments evaluated by ISO in the United States.
Through an all-hazards approach, our three advanced life support fire engines are committed to providing the highest level of emergency services, in a professional, respectful, and ethical manner, while striving to heighten our commitment to excellence to those citizens and visitors we have taken an oath to serve. GFD acknowledges the core values of the fire service, and works diligently to apply them daily. Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence (P.R.I.D.E.).
Groveland Fire Department believes in being actively engaged in the community and will do so through a robust Community Outreach program that reaches all age groups, ethnicities, political and religious affiliations.
In closing, we will continue our unwavering efforts to improve our service, through education, training, staying resolute to community risk reduction and focusing on the health and safety of our firefighters, while at the same time being fiscally responsible to the citizens of our fine City.
I look forward to leading our department into the future and doing so in the most efficient and effective manner possible to serve our community.
