• Fire/Rescue

  • Fire suppression and rescue activities for the Gordonville Fire Protection District include response to several types of fire related conditions. In addition to responding to structural related fires, the fire department responds to fires involving vehicles, brush or grass; refuse containers, and other fires that occur. Fire suppression activities also include investigating situations that are fire related such as automatic fire alarm activations, smoke or odor investigations, power line or transformer problems, and flammable fuel spills or leaks. Also included in this area would be calls for emergency situations like vehicle extrication, activated carbon monoxide detectors, miscellaneous rescue calls and service related calls to check on hazards.

    The fire department through out the community assist one another through automatic mutual aid requests. This additional assistance is a valuable tool in both rescuing endangered occupants and controlling a fire early.
