From the Chief


When I was appointed Fire Chief for the Georgetown City Fire Department, I eagerly accepted the task of leading one of the nation's oldest fire departments. I believe strongly that the fire service plays an important role in the well being of our citizens. To be effective in this role, GCFD must continue to evolve as an organization - keeping up with firefighting trends, using the best technology, and finding more efficient and effective ways to provide service.

GCFD has a renewed commitment to providing emergency services at the highest level, while doing business in a more efficient manner. I have emphasized the importance of both training and safety for our Firefighters. My staff and I will continue to develop new ways to meet the demands of the community, while keeping the Georgetown City Fire Department on the cutting edge of the fire service.

The past few years has been a time of change for the Georgetown City Fire Department. As a sign that our city continues to grow. If we can be of any assistance to you, please feel free to contact us.
