Fire Extinguisher Classes
Fire extinguisher classes typically consist of a 20-25 minute video and a Q&A session, followed by a hands-on practical demonstration. Class length is determined by the number of participants. Hosts are responsible for providing a meeting room, television, and DVD player. Participants must be 18 or older.

When requesting a visit from GCFD personnel and equipment, please keep in mind that our fire trucks are active emergency vehicles, and if they receive a request for service, they will have to leave your event. If that occurs, whether or not they are able to return to your event will depend on the severity of the emergency. If firefighters do not receive a request for service, the amount of time that they can remain at the event will be at the supervisor’s discretion.

American Flag Display
Displaying the American flag is something we are honored to do, and something we take very seriously. In most cases, we will provide the American flag to be displayed. Please note that GCFD only accepts requests to display the American or South Carolina flags.
Request a Flag Hanging
