GTFPD Child Seat Safety Checks

In partnership with the Automotive Safety Program, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI), GTFD announced today the upcoming 2015 Child Passenger Safety Week. The week promotes the importance of proper child seat safety, by raising awareness through a national and statewide ad campaign.

Child Passenger Safety Week is an annual event and takes place this year September 13-19.

Child Passenger Safety Week is supported by federal funding allocated to GTFD from the ICJI Traffic Safety Division. According to ICJI, in 2014, 246 Indiana children under the age of 13 were injured, and 4 children died, from being unrestrained in an automobile accident. Further statistics show that nationally, 71 percent of car seats are not used correctly.

Free child seat inspection stations are offered across the state and available throughout the year at the Fire District.

We provide free inspections by appointment can be made by calling Station 2 at (812) 948-0288.

A Brief History of the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department and GTFPD

In the early 1950’s Georgetown did not have an organized fire department to help battle the fires that seem to become more numerous with the use of coal for heating in the mostly wood frame houses. The first firetruck that the town’s people used was a 1927 model that was housed in a one bay block garage located at State Rd. 64 and then Old State Road 64 (Georgetown Greenville Road).

In 1953 a large portion of the downtown area was destroyed by fire. The towns feed mill, grocery stores and one home was lost.

Combination Fire District

What is a combination fire department? It is what we are.

Simply put, a combination fire department uses both volunteer and paid full-time firefighters to respond to fires, medical emergencies, rescue and other calls.

Our fire district has 10 full time firefighters, part time firefighters and volunteers. As our community has grown we have had to have full time firefighters for a quick initial response.
