The Cliffs at Mountain Park Golf Course
We would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in our Annual Cliffs Golf Tournament and Charity Event. In recent years, the GMFD improved its ISO Public Protection Classification to a 4 and enhanced the delivery of emergency medical services partly due to better staffing, equipment, and training. Donations are a key source of funding that is critical to maintain this level of service, provide greater fire safety, and help counter-balance increases in insurance rates for the over 3,000 households and businesses within the Glassy Mountain Fire Service Area.

This year, donations raised will be for our Volunteer Recruitment and Retention and Paid On-Call (POC) programs. Volunteers are a key to our success and recruitment and retention of new members is an ongoing process. Paid On-Call allows us to augment our full time staffing at our stations in either 8, 12, or 24-hour increments, supplementing regularly scheduled coverage with additional firefighters. These additional personnel are on call or physically at our stations and enhance the number of personnel available to respond at any given time. Last year volunteers provided in excess of 16,000 hours of service, which were valued to be in excess of $360,000.
