Community Outreach & Education
The concept of serving the community is a fundamental part of the Golden Valley Fire Department.
A 6-foot clear space around the circumference of the hydrant will help reduce the time it takes firefighters to hook up hoses if a fire occurs in your neighborhood.
The best time to shovel out a hydrant is after the streets are plowed, before snow accumulates and freezes.
Saturday, Oct 14 | 9–11 am
Come see fire trucks, meet firefighters, and learn more about GVFD’s goals for serving our community today and into the future.
Located at all three fire stations.
Police and firefighters visit a different City park each week and spend time with the children from the neighborhood. They talk, give safety lectures, maybe serve ice cream, and have fun. On hot days, the firetruck becomes the source of a gigantic sprinkler to help the kids cool down.
The goal is to create opportunities for police and firefighters to meet with Golden Valley residents in a casual setting so they get to know each other, develop trust, and build partnerships that ultimately enhance crime prevention and fire safety in the community.
