Sparky and his friends at the firehouse would like to inform you of some fun facts about your CAL FIRE/Gridley Fire Department.
The city of Gridley contracts its fire protection with CAL FIRE/ Butte County Fire Department
Station 74 here in Gridley runs upwards of 1200 emergency calls per year
There is a minimum of four highly trained firefighters living at the station for their 72 hour shift
We operate multiple fire engines, water rescue equipment, and a 110 foot aerial ladder truck
We currently have a 12 member volunteer fire company comprised of local community members
There is no charge for our service which includes responding to medical aids, fires, rescues, hazardous material issues and much more!
We are happy to give educational talks to local school children including tours of the firehouse!
We issue residential and agricultural burn permits as well as campfire permits all free of charge during business hours which are 8-12 and 1:30-5pm seven days a week.
CAL FIRE/Gridley Fire Department appreciates your community support and invites you to stop by and meet your local firefighters to better understand YOUR local Gridley firehouse for our Open House on the second Saturday in October. We will have station tours, fire engine displays, Sparky the Fire Dog, Children Activities and fire fighter demonstrations!
