Granville Volunteer Fire Department

Proudly serving Granville and the surrounding communities since 1951.

Training Meetings

Regular training meetings occur on the first and third Tuesdays each month. These meetings consist of about one and one half to two hours of training on various topics. Special trainings also occur one Sunday each month for subjects which require more in depth instruction. Typically in a years time, we will hold about 60 hours of in-house training. County, state, and national fire schools also take place throughout the year which provide additional training to our members. Emergency Medical Service training is also conducted in addition to fire and rescue training.
