Call Before You Burn!
Please see instructions from the Chief, right
Controlled Burns:

If you are going to do a controlled burn you must call 1-870-423-7373 our non emergency dispatch line to inform them. It is best to burn during the daytime. When there is a burn at night many folks see it and call 911. 

We will respond on any call we are dispatched to but consider a controlled burn called in to 911 as an honest mistake. Our volunteers serve the community and receive no compensation. Thank you for your consideration. 

Robert McVey, GKVFD Fire Chief
IS THE BURN BAN ON?
Each year we respond to rescues on the river when the Corp. starts generating. Even though some hear the sounding of the horn they fail to get out in time. We used to respond with life jackets and a throw rope only to stand on shore with no way to reach the victim(s). Grassy Knob Vol. Fire Assoc. has now purchased a river rescue boat. It is 20'9" and very stable. The motor has no propeller but rather a jet for propulsion. This boat should serve The community for many years to come!

Grassy Knob Volunteer Fire Department   

Mission Statement
The Grassy Knob Fire Department has one simple goal: To provide the community the best service possible. This is achieved by the commitment of all volunteers who do their part to make the department a success. From the firefighters to the fire chief, to the emergency medical responders (EMR’s) to the traffic controllers, a proud tradition of exceptional service has been established by those who came before and those here today. In the future, our department will continue to seek out new, innovative ways to provide quality service to our citizens, and to make Grassy Knob a great place to live.

Bob McVey
Fire Chief, GKVFD

Grassy Knob Community:  We are Grassy Knob's Homeowners, Property owners, Land and Business owners who are joined together to sustain a Volunteer Fire Department with Traffic Directors and EMT’s for the safety of all. Membership is a choice and a smart one too, for without a local fire department, our homeowners insurance would rise 400%! And besides all that, we have a wonderful community center where we gather for pot lucks, celebrations, meetings and exercise. Membership is low cost with high benefits due to the volunteers who make it all happen. Learn more on our COMMUNITY PAGE and consider how you would like to be involved in this beautiful association.
