In the Rogue Valley our Fire agencies work cooperatively together through Mutual Aid. To do this effectively we must train together so that we are all on the same page. In the Valley there are three Ladder Units. For Medford Fire and Rescue it is 8121, for Jackson County Fire District 3 it is 7722, and for Grants Pass Fire/Rescue we have 7328. When one of these units is staffed you will hear them commonly called a Truck Company. Today our three agencies met over at Jackson County Fire District 3’s training grounds, to work together on Truck Company operations. This training brings us together so that we can learn from one another. We can also provide scenario based training to challenge each other. Finally in the event we have a large incident with multiple Truck Companies on scene, this training will help those interactions run seamless so that we can get our missions accomplished. We are truly training together to keep our Valley safe. ... See MoreSee Less

Grants Pass Firefighters traveled to Jackson County today to train with Medford Fire-Rescue and Fire District 3. This inter-agency truck company operations training allows GPFR members and those from our neighboring agencies the opportunity to share knowledge and ideas on how to best serve the public. Thank you Medford Fire Rescue and Fire District 3 for a great day of traning!

Grants Pass Firefighters we’re kept busy early this morning with simultaneous fires. Just after 04:00 Engine 7307 was dispatched to a large vehicle fire on Interstate-5. While they were committed to that incident, a #structurefire was toned out on the Southeast side of town. Engines 7308 and 7309 responded and we're assisted by Rural Metro. #keepinggrantspasssafe #iaff3564 #mutualaid #local3564 #orfirefighters @orfirefighters ... See MoreSee Less
