We Train….We Train….We Train….

Glassy Mountain Fire Department is proud to be one of the largest, and best trained Combination Departments in the Upstate.    Of the approximately 50 Members, 25 are trained Firefighters, 17 EMT’s, 10 Paramedics, and 8 Emergency Medical Responders.   Training, Recruitment, and Continual Improvement are department priorities.

2018 was a busy year for us as we ended with 726 responses. Of those, 162 were Mutual/Automatic aid responses. And of those 162, 101 were QRV responses to assist GCEMS in our neighboring agencies.   

We continue to be a leader in EMS care in northern Greenville County influencing others to step up their role in providing medical care to their constituency.
