Fire Department

The Gridley Fire Department protects Gridley community members, their lives, homes, property, and businesses. We protect Gridley from fire and other threats to life safety. We envision a community free of threat from fire or risk to life safety. We value: compassion, loyalty, integrity, and Gridley, the community we protect.

The Fire Department provides fire, rescue, emergency medical, public service, and hazardous materials emergency response service for the City. This includes fire prevention, pre-fire planning, emergency prepardness, firefighting, fire investigation, and code enforcement. The Fire Department operates two components, a career staff funded jointly by the City and County, responsible for day-to-day operations and a Volunteer Company providing the necessary depth of personnel for most incidents.
