Fire Hydrants

The Georgetown Township Fire Department would like to thank the News and Tribune and WDRB Fox 41 for assisting us with our message on the obstruction of local fire hydrants.

For clarification, if a fire hydrant is blocked or obstructed, the GTFD Firefighters should still be able to locate it, but the obstruction and/or blockage may cause a significant delay in accessing it during an emergency situation.

If you have questions about fire hydrant access, or to report broken, or damaged hydrants in your area, please contact the Georgetown Township Fire Department at 812-951-2354, or 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.
