Challenging winter for firefighters

It has been a challenging winter for firefighters across the county. Between white out conditions, heavy snow loads, buried hydrants and icy conditions Mother Nature has thrown us many challenges.  Please use extra caution backing out of driveways with high banks, keep your speeds low and leave distance between you and the car in front of you.  Here are a few snapshots from this winter: snowblower fire in a garage, chimney fire and heavy snow load takes down a roof.

Thank you for clearing your hydrants

We have sent teams of firefighters out every week digging out fire hydrants in Georgetown Township. If you see a fire truck out working in your neighborhood, please use caution around workers. We know we can’t open every hydrant so we thank you for helping us out. You could end up helping out your neighbors in the event of  a fire. Thanks again.

Coats for kids

Georgetown Fire Department is conducted its 2nd annual “Fire Coats 4 Kids- No Child Goes Cold” Campaign.  Due to the current state of the economy, there is a great need in the Jenison and Hudsonville School systems for winter coats.  We are  again collecting new and gently used winter coats, gloves, and hats for the kids of Georgetown Township. Our goal last  year was  500 winter coats and that goal was met thank you. Lets see if we can do it again this year.

 You can drop off your new or gently used coats at any Georgetown fire station.
