Gallatin River Ranch Fire Department
The Gallatin River Ranch Fire Department provides fire, rescue and emergency medical services for the Gallatin River Ranch Rural Fire District located north of Manhattan, MT. The Fire District was established in December, 1999, by the Gallatin County Commission. The District covers about 9 square miles, 90 structures, and a full-time population of about 150. The GRR Fire Department was then organized under the supervision of an elected Board of Trustees. From 1999 to 2017 the department was run by a paid chief. The fire department changed to an all-volunteer model in May of 2017. The department is led by Chief Marlin Sprow and includes volunteer firefighters as well as reserve and auxiliary members.
WE NEED VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS!

The lucky ATV raffle winner is a resident of Belgrade with no association with either the GRR Fire Department or GRRHOA. The Raffle portion of the fundraiser raised $9,810 after accounting for the cost of the ATV and fundraising materials. The GRR Rural Fire District has received $7450 in donations from GRRHOA members to date. The grand total raised in both efforts is $17,260. All of this money will be used for construction of a new GRR Fire Station.
The direct donation drive will continue, and GRRHOA members are encouraged to consider a donation to help build a new GRR Fire Station. Several proposals are being considered with regard to a new station. All of these focus on building it on the GRRHOA property at 5770 Nixon Gulch Road. More details will follow as they develop.
FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION GRANT AWARD
The Gallatin River Ranch Rural Fire District is pleased to announce the award of a grant in the amount of $8773 from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. This grant will fund the purchase of three sets of Globe structure firefighting personal protective equipment (PPE) including helmets with visors, hoods, coats, gloves, trousers with suspenders, and boots. This equipment will provide three of our firefighters with the latest in safety equipment for fighting structure fires.
The GRR Rural Fire District Trustees and the members of the GRR Fire Department are grateful to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for this generous award. It allows the department to replace its last three sets of old structure firefighting PPE and improve firefighter safety.
ABOUT THE FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION
In 2005 the Firehouse Subs Founders established the 501(c)(3) non-profit Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The charity provides funding resources, lifesaving equipment, prevention education, training, and disaster relief support to first responders and public safety organizations. Since inception, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $48 million to hometown heroes in 49 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $217,000 in Montana.

We encourage GRRHOA members to remember Firehouse Subs when they get a hankering for a submarine sandwich!
TOWN PUMP CHARITABLE FOUNDATION GRANT AWARD
The Town Pump Charitable Foundation awarded GRRRFD $5,000 toward the purchase of nine new MSA G1 4500 psi 45-minute air cylinders. The total cost for these air cylinders is $8,055. We thank the Foundation for their generous award, all of which was used to help defray the cost of these new cylinders.
The Town Pump Charitable Foundation provides grant support to fire and public safety organizations throughout Montana each year. They also provide financial support to a number of other charities and non-profit organizations, all of which strive to make our state a better place to live.
