Fire Department

Message From the Chief
Thank you for visiting our website. The Gilroy Fire Department is an all-risk career fire department with 41 men and women committed to your safety.

Our 3 stations are staffed around the clock and provide services to a population of over 50,000 residents. This geographical area covers over 16 square miles and includes residential, commercial, retail, agriculture, wildland, and industrial. In 2015 our crews responded to 5,211 calls for service.

Located at the intersection of 2 major transportation arteries, Gilroy is the southern gateway to Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. Known as the “Garlic Capital of the World”, Gilroy has an ideal climate and a high quality of life. The Gilroy premium outlets draw customers from afar and many visitors include a visit to the Gilroy Gardens theme park.

Whether you are a resident or a visitor, we hope that you will never need our services but if you do know that our professionals stand ready to assist you.

Fire Chief
