FGFD Displays New Fire Truck

FGFD Push-In Ceremony an Historic Event


Tuesday, July 16th marked the official addition of the new FGFD Apparatus “E-2” to our fleet. The event was witnessed by over 40 residents and department personnel along with members of the Stone Memorial High School Football team.

The ceremonies included presentations by FGFD Board President Dave Corcoran, Chief Kirk McLaughlin, Safety Officer Kieth Larkin and Deputy Chief Kurt Wehrmann.

The honor of riding in the truck as it moved into its new home went to our long-time friend and supporter, Jim Etzel. For many years, Jim has graciously donated his time to the department as a firefighter, records officer and distinguished board member. Not only has Jim donated his time and energy to the department but he is also a generous benefactor. It goes without saying that without Jim’s help, the FGFD might not exist today. A commemorative plaque honoring Jim will forever reside on the dashboard of E-2.

After the speeches, and with the aid of residents, FGFD members and the Stone Memorial HS football team, we welcomed E-2 to her new home. A special thank you to the businesses and residents of Fairfield Glade for their continued moral and financial support. Their generosity made this new fire truck possible.

A Message from the Chief!

Chief, Fairfield Glade Fire Department

Lack of Rain Increases Fire Risk


I don’t have to remind you that the recent lack of significant rainfall has increased the risk of brush fires. Fairfield Glade has always had a Burn Ban Policy. To review this policy please click here. We ask that residents use common sense and refrain from outdoor fires until the risk of brush fires has lessened.
