Fire Prevention

This includes code enforcement, inspection, fire investigation and public education. These are key areas in holding down costs associated with traditional fire department response.

Training and Compliance

The Gaylord Fire Department ensures proper training for all fire department personnel. Monthly drills include all aspects of fire and emergency response.


Firefighting and rescue tasks, prevention and support activities are carried out by the firefighters.  The fire department maintains its own equipment operating out of a modern facility.
