Message from the Fire Chief t
o the Citizens of Glendale:


It is my privilege to join the men and women of the Glendale Fire Department who take tremendous pride in their community and work hard to provide you with top quality services every day.  No matter where you live in the City your nearest fire station is never more than a few minutes away staffed around the clock by crews of fast, caring, innovative and professional firefighters and paramedics. It’s our mission and purpose to serve you. 

Statistics show that over 85% of our call volume is medical in nature. The community based strategic planning process challenges us to explore new and innovative ways to deliver the most precise level of care  in the most cost-effective manner possible. We are well on the way to accomplishing this through the use of electronic patient care reporting and the deployment of a non-emergency unit to respond our least urgent calls for service. 

The City’s adopted Building and Fire Codes have been highly effective in helping to control fire loss and prevent injury. However, accidents will always happen; a forgotten pot on the stove, an unattended candle, a curious child. As long as these unfortunate incidents occur there will be a need for highly skilled and well-trained firefighters willing to rush into burning buildings while everyone else rushes out. 

Citizen involvement in department activities is encouraged and welcomed.  We offer a variety of educational opportunities for people of all ages. And if volunteering appeals to you our safety events, drowning prevention campaigns and smoke alarm walks are great ways to interact with the community and assist a neighbor in need. 

Our family of dedicated professionals looks forward to meeting you; hopefully under only pleasant circumstances but if you should ever need our help I assure you we stand ready to serve.

Best regards,

Terry Garrison
Fire Chief
