Since 1912, Glendale Firefighters have protected residents and served our community
There’s never a dull moment in Glendale. One of the Valley’s fastest growing cities, we thrive on action and excitement, from Arizona Cardinals games at the University of Phoenix Stadium to the crowds that come for our many holiday events. No matter the emergency, the Glendale Firefighters are there to safeguard the public sun up to sun down, 365 days a year. Nor does our commitment to Glendale end once the accident has been cleared or the fire has gone out. Together with our public safety partners in the Police Department, the Glendale Firefighters have combined to save residents $7 million since 2008. We’ve deferred more than $750,000 in compensation, paid for supplies out of our pockets and done more with fewer firefighters on the street.
The Glendale Fire Department could hardly be busier: We have the highest number of fire/EMS calls per unit in the entire Valley. Fire calls have increased 16 percent in the past year. And EMS calls are up 13 percent. We also care about helping those in need. That’s why the Glendale Firefighters volunteer countless hours all over the city. Together with our fellow chapters in Local 493, the Glendale Firefighters raise about $1 million for charity annually.
