|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.
