Medical

The Graham Fire Department has responded to motor vehicle accidents for fire suppression purposes for some time. In fall of 2019, GFD began responding to Cardiac Arrest incidents as a first responder agency. In 2020, GFD will begin responding to all serious medical calls (based on EMD protocols) in the city. This will be a partnership with Alamance County EMS to provide a rapid first responder response to the citizens of Graham.

Hazardous Materials Response

The Graham Fire Department responds at the NC Operational Level for hazardous material responses. Generally, for major hazardous material incidents the GFD will request assistance from the Alamance County Emergency Management agency and a NC Regional Response Team out of Greensboro or Raleigh.

Fire Inspections & Investigations

The Graham Fire Department Inspections and Investigations division conducts routine fire inspections for approximately 800 business and occupancies throughout the city. The GFD Fire Inspector can be reached at (336) 570-6707 ext. 125
