Welcome…

Located in Northern Michigan, Grand Traverse Metro Emergency Services Authority is a unique fire department that consists of three former township fire departments. Grand Traverse Metro Emergency Services Authority now operates as one department that covers Acme, East Bay and Garfield Townships.

Look Before You Lock

It’s easy to dismiss the concerns of hyperthermia or heatstroke when the weather isn’t all that hot, but it only takes an outside temperature of 70 degrees to create risks for children who are left or trapped in a locked vehicle. Death by “hyperthermia” is the official designation. When it happens to young children, the facts are often the same: An otherwise loving and attentive parent one day gets busy, or distracted, or upset, or confused by a change in his or her daily routine, and just… forgets a child is in the car. It happens that way somewhere in the United States on an average of 30 times a year.

NEVER LEAVE A CHILD UNATTENDED IN A VEHICLE. NOT EVEN FOR A MINUTE! IF YOU SEE A CHILD UNATTENDED IN A HOT VEHICLE CALL 9-1-1.

Safe Neighborhood Campaign

Unless you see a fire start, you can only find out there is a fire if you’re awake to smell the smoke. If you happen to be asleep, a smoke alarm is the only way to save your life and the lives of everyone sleeping in your home. Smoke alarms are intended to sound an alarm when they sense smoke. Smoke rises so place the alarms near the celling or directly onto the ceiling. Make sure there is a smoke alarm on every level of the home, inside each bedroom, and outside each sleeping area. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for installation and lifespan of smoke alarms.

Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department is invested into helping to ensure that all residents have properly working smoke alarms. Find out how we can help! Read More
