Gallatin Volunteer Fire Department is a non-profit organization. Our district currently covers communities north, east, and northwest of Gallatin, Tennessee, an area of approximately 67 square miles. We run an average of 500 calls a year. We respond for all fire suppression, both structure and wildland, motor vehicle accidents, medical and special incidents.

The department continues to function through fundraisers, fire suppression and motor vehicle accident billing, and membership drives. Without the support of our community the department would not be able to remain functional. Beginning 2007-2008, Sumner County gives each Volunteer Fire Department $12,000.00. Our department requires at the minimal a $34,000.00 operations budget.

Please take a look at our Equipment page. We currently have 2 engines and brush truck. Through FEMA grants and the support of our community and by fundraisers, we were able to upgrade to newer vehicles and maintain them.

Without GVFD, our community would not have the fire protection needed to meet homeowners insurance requirements. With the existence of GVFD, it not only gives the protection needed so that our homeowners can sleep at night, but it also gives them a break on their insurance premiums. Currently, we are working with local businesses and civic leaders to establish a second station for our eastern community to improve protection and lower their insurance costs.

The rating of GVFD Fire Department determines the discount on insurance premiums. Nonetheless, the better equipped and manned GVFD is, the better the score.
