Greensprings Rural Fire District (GRFD) was formed to provide professional fire fighting, emergency medical, rescue, and education/prevention services for the Greensprings Community of southern Oregon.
GRFD is an all-volunteer agency staffed by members of the Greensprings and surrounding communities. Our response area borders California and extends north to Dead Indian Memorial Highway, east to the Klamath County line, and west to the Greensprings Summit.
Through mutual and automatic aid agreements, GRFD provides assistance to other Rogue Valley fire agencies and communities. GRFD also manages the Greensprings Community Firewise program, providing consultation and assistance with residential fuels reduction projects.
Greensprings Rural Fire District is funded solely through community membership dues, donations, and public/private grants. Our fire station is located in the heart of the Greensprings Community, at the corner of Oregon Highway 66 and the Hyatt Lake Access road.
