Station 42 is CGFR’s main fire station. It houses two engines, two ambulances and a rescue trailer with snow machines and 4-wheelers. The CGFR Administrative offices are located here including the Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, Admin Assistant, three career shift Officers. Business hours are 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday.
The original fire station included three short apparatus bays, two offices, a training room, kitchen and a bunk room. An addition was completed in March 2000, giving us four new offices, a new training room, two long apparatus bays and one short bay. The original station offices and training room were remodeled into private rooms for live-in firefighters and medics. The living area was recently remodeled and included much needed improvements to the volunteer bunk room.
The station is staffed 24 hours a day by a career shift officer and engineer. Currently we have living space for 7 live in firefighters. Volunteers sign up for shifts to help man the station for calls, they also respond from home to help back fill the station in preparation for a second call.
