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.

Gilbert residents needing medical transport may soon find themselves riding in an ambulance operated by the Gilbert Fire and Rescue Department.
The new ambulance, Medic 253, will be crewed by trained civilian emergency medical technicians (EMT) and paramedics out of Fire Station 3.
