Department Overview

Groveland Fire Department provides fire and rescue services too approximately 20,000 residents spread throughout 26.9 square miles.  Within the City borders exists 27 bodies of water that make up 1/5 of the City with Natural Charm.  Because it is necessary to respond around the lakes, the placement of future stations will need careful consideration as to not delay response times for service.  Over the next twenty years through annexations, the City’s incorporated land boundary is forecasted to double, along with its population.

By employing firefighters who are cross-trained as paramedics or emergency medical technicians, GFD is prepared to respond to and mitigate all fire and medical emergencies.   GFD also works very closely with our Groveland Police Department, and other surrounding law enforcement agencies, and has a collaborative and seamless working relationship with Clermont Fire Department, Minneola Fire Department, Lake County Fire Department and Lake County EMS, who provides advanced life support transport services to the entire County. 

Groveland Fire Department (GFD) serves our residents and visitors 24/7/365 with fire protection and advanced life support (ALS) emergency medical services.  GFD accomplishes this utilizing three (3) frontline Class “A” Fire Engines, one (1) Reserve Fire Engine, two (2) Brush Wildland Units and a Marine Unit.
