The Glassy Mountain Fire Department (GMFD) provides vital life and property saving services to Cliffs residents in the Valley, Glassy and Mountain Park communities. Together our communities and some surrounding areas are called the Glassy Mountain Fire Service Area (GMFSA).
 
Did you know GMFD operates with a full-time Chief; an Administrative Manager, nine career firefighters and approximately 45 volunteer firefighters, cadets, and first responders who serve at five fire stations housing 22 pieces of apparatus?
   
Advanced Life Support Paramedical Response
 
More than 80% of the department’s calls are medically related (largely cardiac incidents). The forward thinking GMFD leader, Chief Bob Staples, and the Board of Commissioners decided to place an emphasis on having Advanced Life Support (ALS) qualified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) on duty 24/7 and obtaining the best medical/firefighting support equipment available. 
 
Today, the department has completed an aggressive training program for their EMTs and through generous community donations have acquired an automatic chest compression device and a LifePak-15 Cardiac Heart Monitor/Defibrillator. The department now provides Advanced Life Support capabilities 24/7, placing GMFD on par with any large city service capabilities.
 
   
Funding Help Needed Now
 
Unfortunately, neither of two fundraising events, the GMFD Rummage Sale or the GMFD Golf Tournament has been held for the last two years due to COVID.  GMFD has had to rely on community donations to make up for the fund raising shortfall. 
 
While fundraising events are expected to resume next year, in the meantime, kindly keep the GMFD in mind when making charitable donations. All monies raised directly benefits Valley residents as well as the community at large. (Contribute to GMFD Here)
 
   
Volunteer 
 
If you are interested in a personally rewarding community service opportunity, consider becoming involved with the GMFD.  Fire Commissioners serve a 4-year term and responsibilities include oversight of the overall operations of the department to include budgetary, personnel, training, equipment and facility issues and concerns. 
 
Today, Valley members that are involved with the GMFD include: Commissioners Carl Roed and Stuart Safft , Mark Shaver (volunteer firefighter/Department Chaplin), and Bob Otto (volunteer firefighter).
