Service, Safety, & Support
The Mission of the Green Valley Fire Corps is to provide Prevention and Safety Services to our Community that result in Superior Customer Satisfaction and Enhance the Effectiveness of the Green Valley Fire District.
The GV Fire Corps started in 2006 with a dozen local residents interested in volunteering to help the Green Valley Fire District with day-to-day, non-emergent calls, such as desert pests and chirping smoke alarms. In addition, they offered to help with deliveries and errands, shuttling vehicles and supplies, clerical support, lock box installations, and home safety checks.
This has now grown to include five-day-per-week coverage for our Smoke Alarm Battery and Replacement Program, monitoring and replacing batteries in residential smoke alarms, as well as installing new A/C powered, battery back-up smoke alarms in local homes.
Fire Corps has over 70 volunteer members who work in the Field or Administration, and they have become an invaluable asset, both to the District and the community. In 2012, our Fire Corps was the recipient of the National Fire Corps Award of Excellence, for the best Fire Corps in the country.
