Welcome to the Granite City Fire Department!

This site was created to provide you with information about our department; current safety issues, and important fire and EMS forms. It also gives you an opportunity to contact the fire department with any questions or concerns you may have.

The department staffs four ALS ambulances, three engines, two ladder trucks and four staff vehicles, but by far our greatest assets are the dedicated men and women that make up our fire department. They are committed to the citizens of Granite City 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We deliver EMS, fire, rescue, building inspections, code enforcement, fire investigation and emergency management from our three strategically located fire stations.

This site will offer you interesting and educational information, but I hope will also reflect the pride and spirit within our department. We have a great respect for the historic past of the fire service, a strong sense of duty toward excellent performance in the present, and a real enthusiasm for meeting the challenge of the future.

The purpose of the Granite City Fire Department is to deliver the highest quality of service to the community in the most effective, efficient, safe and professional manner possible with the resources available.

Our services focus on protecting life and property through prevention, education, preparation and response.
So, whether you are a concerned citizen, a fire buff looking for specific information, or just browsing, I hope you will find this site helpful and informative. I welcome your questions or comments.
Thanks for visiting our site, and I invite you to visit us in person if you have the chance.
