Protecting You & Your Family
Glyndon Fire & Rescue is proud to serve the Glyndon area, we cover approximately 144 square miles and are ready to handle any type of fire emergency, as well as other emergency situations. Our first-responders are professionally trained to deal with fires, rescues, motor vehicle incidents, medical emergencies requiring BLS & more.
We are equipped AED's & The LUCAS™ Chest Compression System. We also utilize a Thermal Imaging Camera to detect fires inside of walls and other areas not seen by the human eye.
As with any successful organization, there needs to be people that care. We have the most caring and dedicated individuals in the profession. Without their input and hard work, there would not be a fire department. Thank you to all the people that work behind the scenes to support us on a daily basis!
