We had another fantastic training this week with some friends from our neighboring departments. Being able to rely on our fantastic mutual aid departments is not only a luxury, it’s absolutely essential. When we have a large incident we have to be able to work seamlessly with these departments and that’s what exactly what we are working to accomplish in this training.

Today, with the help of Sentinel Emergency Solutions we completed our annual pump testing. The pump testing puts all of our trucks through a stringent test to ensure they pump at their rated capacity.

Thank you to our volunteers who gave up their day to make sure our fleet is ready to serve our community! ... See MoreSee Less
PR Request information:
SGFD is always happy to assist with PR events or standbys when we can. We are a unpaid volunteer fire department with limited resources and may not always be able to staff events due to manpower availability. Just like the citizens in our area we have full time jobs and family responsibilities that take up most of our time.
If you would like to request SGFD for PR events or standbys please call our fire house at 573-883-5321 at least 2 weeks prior with the date, time and event info. We will get back to you as soon as possible and let you know if we are able to attend.
Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
