The Training Department works to maintain required training records and offer high quality training opportunities for employees of the GVFD and the surrounding communities. The training department offers quality training in disciplines ranging from emergency medical services, to hazardous materials, technical rescue, and firefighting. According to the United States Fire Administration (USFA), there were twenty two (22) firefighters killed during fire-ground operations in 2012. Though immersive, realistic, and challenging training, the GVFD is determined to not become a statistic.
