The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division is responsible for training and maintaining the certification of the EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), Advanced EMTs, and Paramedics for the City of Greenwood. The division operates as an Advanced Life Support Non-Transport at the Paramedic level.
The Fire Code Enforcement and Investigation Division has two distinct, yet overlapping roles: (1) Enforcement of the Indiana Fire Code and the City of Greenwood Fire Ordinance for all new and existing businesses, industries and the continuously growing subdivision communities and (2) Investigation of the origin and cause of reported fires.
The Training Division’s goal is to provide progressive, state-of-the-art training to 100+ firefighters, both full-time and part-time, on three (3) shifts at four (4) separate firehouses. Weekly shift trainings are coordinated in all areas of fire service and special operations response, keeping firefighters up-to-date on new techniques and familiar with existing industry standards.
The Greenwood Fire Department is currently accepting applications

The department visits all Greenwood Community Elementary Schools twice each year. Spring visits include our dual purpose Safety Trailer where grades K-2 receive fire safety training and grades 3-5 receive severe weather training. In the Fall, all children learn Stop, Drop, and Roll as well as many other fire safety facts.
By the time students reach middle school, they have received training directly from our firefighters 12 times.
GFD also offers station tours, field trips and a number of public safety education opportunities. To schedule a tour or field trip, or to learn more about GFD on-site safety sessions, please email the department or call 317.882.2599.
