About the Gibbons Fire Department
“To protect the lives and property of the citizens of the Town of Gibbons and the surrounding area through emergency response, education and prevention”
The Gibbons Fire Department plays a major role in providing emergency response to the Town of Gibbons and surrounding area in Sturgeon County. The members of the community depend on the volunteers with the Gibbons Fire Department for their every day fire protection.
Men and women from many walks of life are volunteer firefighters. Volunteers include the self-employed, mother/fathers at home, shift workers, people looking for work, trades people and professionals. They are all people who care about their communities and want to be actively involved in them.
The Gibbons Fire Department responds to many calls each year. Even for busier times, many calls occur outside normal working hours. All training is carried out on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and the occasional weekend. Time spent on the job can range from half an hour for a false alarm to 4-5 hours in a rare emergency.
Most employers find considerable advantages in having people with Fire Services training on their staff – people who can fight fires, give first aid, perform CPR and keep a cool head in an emergency. Officer training also develops leadership and management skills and experience that can be useful in the workplace.
Training nights are every Tuesday at 7pm
Vehicle & hall cleanup are Sundays at 7pm
