Glynn County Fire-Rescue’s Fire Operations handles all calls for emergency medical services and events involving fire suppression activities; all of these calls together constitute the bulk of the emergency responses. Additional emergencies may include specialized rescues (confined space, trench, high-angle), motor vehicle accidents, extrications, hazardous materials incidents, and disaster scenarios. When not on emergency responses, personnel assigned to this division conduct a multitude of “preparation” activities, including equipment testing, station details, annual hydrant inspections, commercial pre-fire planning, and many hours of training. With response areas separated into eight geographical districts, personnel are divided between three 24 hour shifts
