Girdwood Fire Department's primary mission is to provide Fire, Rescue and EMS services to the Girdwood Fire Service District and the Turnagain Arm Community.
We offer additional services to our community including:
Public Education and Fire Prevention
October is Fire Prevention Month, but we participate in public outreach throughout the entire calendar year. We often visit the Girdwood Elementary School and provide age-appropriate presentations on fire prevention and life safety. We provide educational tours of the fire station to the general public, for all types of groups and ages - from the Little Bears preschoolers to adults. We are also active with the Boy Scouts of America, providing course material suitable for Merit Badges.
EMT and FF Certification Courses
We hold EMS and Fire certification courses for our Members. Occasionally we have classes open to the public, check here often for notices!
