Since 1949, Glade Spring Fire Department Inc. (GSFD) has been providing fire suppression and prevention services to eastern Washington County, from our station located in the Town of Glade Spring.
Like other Fire Departments throughout the County, our members have been answering calls from their homes and places of business for over 60 years. When it was established, our Department was comprised solely of volunteers…and it still is to this day.
We continue to provide first-class emergency services to all residents, businesses, and visitors within our first-due response area.

Weather warning signals are sounded when severe damaging winds or a tornado has been spotted within five miles of our community or if the community is in the direct path of a spotted tornado as issued by the National Weather Service.
A Weather Warning Alert signal is a 3 to 5 minute steady siren and is activated in the event a tornado or severe damaging winds are reported. This reporting includes a five-mile perimeter.
All Clear Signal
In keeping with the policy of the National Weather Service, the issuance of an All Clear Signal statement SHOULD NOT be issued by local government.
The Attack Warning signal means that an actual attack or detected missile launch against the United States has been detected and that protective action should be taken immediately.
An attack warning is a three (3) to five (5) minute wavering siren tone.
