Station 1 Long Range Planning

GVFRS has outgrown our Main Street Station, Station 1, which can no longer properly support the needed equipment and personnel.  GVFRS has been working for nearly two years to develop options to meet the needs of the department and the community for at least the next 50 years.

You can track our progress on our Long Range Planning pages.

Kitchen fires account for almost half of all residential structure fires! If you should have a pan of grease catch fire, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOVE IT FROM THE STOVE! Firefighters all over the country have been to numerous house fires where the fire started on the stove, and the occupant attempted to carry the burning pan outside only to badly burn themselves, drop the pan and cause extensive damage to their home! Some people have even died from trying to carry a burning pan of grease outside!If the fire just started and is small and you have a lid nearby that fits the pan, put the lid over the pan to smother the fire. If the fire has grown, hopefully you already have an ABC fire extinguisher that is readily visible in your kitchen and within reach of the stove! (If you don't, please consider getting one now before you need it!) NEVER ATTEMPT TO FIGHT A GREASE FIRE WITH WATER! The grease will splatter and catch the kitchen and house on fire and probably burn you as well.Please take a moment to view the video.Our Fire Prevention Team recently came across a residential stove top fire extinguishing system that may be of interest to some of our followers. Just go to the first comment below and click on the weblink for additional information. As always, Gloucester's Volunteer Fire Prevention Team is always willing to answer your questions. #gvfrs ...
