The department is comprised of 6 Fire Stations across the city with daily staffing of up to 42 personnel spread across 4 Engine Companies, 2 Truck Companies, 1 Battalion Chief, 2 Medical Officers, 6 “911” Ambulances, and 1 “IFT” / Day-Shift Ambulance. The department recently built its sixth station and has plans to add two more in the next 5 years to add additional coverage to the growing city thanks to the 2018 First Responder Tax that will fund 3 new fire stations, the personnel to staff them, and the apparatus to respond with.
The City of Grand Junction Fire Department provides fire protection, rescue, and emergency medical services to the City of Grand Junction, Grand Junction Rural Fire Protection District, and Grand Junction Redlands Fire Sub-District.
