|Community Outreach & Education
Gilbert Fire & Rescue is proud to offer several community outreach programs including station tours, car seat clinics and safety classes.
Protecting Older Residents: Preventing Falls
Gilbert Fire & Rescue’s number one call for service is falls, and residents age 65 years and older are the most at risk. In fact, an older adult dies from a fall every 20 minutes in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
That’s why Gilbert Fire & Rescue is teaming up with Dignity Health Trauma Services to develop prevention strategies and community programs to help educate and empower older residents.

The Gilbert Fire & Rescue Department is excited to welcome a new member to their team, Zeta, the department’s new Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) arson detection dog. Zeta came to GFRD last month after a six-week training course in Virginia with her handler, fire investigator David Zehring, and ATF.

Advanced Storm Spotter Training in Gilbert
Register by email Kim.Yondafirstname.lastname@example.org or call (480) 503-6357
and provide your Spotter ID number.
Gilbert will be hosting a specialized training course on Wednesday May 27th for members of the National Weather Service's Skywarn Storm Spotter program. This optional two hour class will explore meteorological topics in greater depth than is possible in the standard class. Topics will include thermodynamic charts, radar interpretation, and the role of vertical wind shear on storm structure.
The class is open to those who have attended a standard Spotter class within the past two training seasons (2014 or 2015). Skywarn Spotters are volunteers that are community minded individuals who aid public safety by providing key storm information to the National Weather Service.
