About the Garrison Volunteer Fire Company

The Garrison Volunteer Fire Company is made of up of men and women just like you — members of the community who enjoy getting together to assist with local events, help out in emergencies, and, yes, put out fires.

We clear roads when trees or wires fall, assist with traffic accidents (and extricate people from cars), find lost hikers, investigate alarms, and try to keep our community safe and operating smoothly.

We are not paid, and we help keep Garrison taxes low by taking on infrequent but important jobs for which it would be much more expensive to maintain a standing force of career responders.

You might share these values.

You might enjoy seeing a totally different slice of Garrison from time to time, whether it’s putting out a brush fire next to the library, investigating a chimney fire at a house where George Washington¬†actually¬†slept, or handling a traffic accident at the Bear Mountain Bridge at six in the morning while fog rolls up the river and the sun breaks over the mountains.

If you haven’t seen and done these things, you should. You live in one of the world’s most beautiful river valleys, surrounded by some of the world’s best people. Call us at 424-4406, email us at information@garrisonfd.org. Good stuff happens when you least expect it.
