Who is the Groebseck VFD
The Groesbeck Journal is proud to bring you this highlight on our great firefighters we have right here in Groesbeck. Each week we will have a short
biography and photo of one of Groesbeck’s own firefighters.
The Groesbeck Fire-Rescue Department currently has 32 members in the department. Our membership is made up of 77% males and 33% females, ranging in age from 18 to 58. Members must pass a physical and successfully complete a 6-month probationary period to become a regular member of the fire department. All our members must complete 60 hours of training per year. We train in a lot of areas but focus on structural firefighting, auto extrication, wildland firefighting, water rescue and rope rescue. Our Department averages 55 incidents per month but responded to
94 incidents in January.
