Message from the Chief:

Since my appointment we have embarked on a very ambitious schedule of updating and modernizing the Grand Traverse Rural Fire Department. This website, our New Facebook page and a complete overhaul of our information and technology systems are few examples of these changes. We have also made some very important changes in the way our organization is structured. This was done to shorten our lines of communications and to unify the five responding station to one cohesive group of highly trained and dedicated responders. Rural Fire is working hard to position itself to provide for the ever changing landscape of emergency services. We are developing strategies to maximize services with the revenues available. I see a very bright future for Grand Traverse Rural Fire Department. Every day I am inspired by the quality of our membership who give so freely to help others.
