Gravel Ridge Fire Protection District No. Nine

The Gravel Ridge Fire Dept. was founded in 1959 and is assigned as Pulaski county fire protection district #9. We have about 23 members, all volunteer, seving the community of Gravel Ridge. We have an ISO rating of 5 and protect a residential area. We border the Little Rock AFB in Jacksonville, AR. We provide mutual aid for Runyan Acres and North Pulaski Fire Departments. Most of our firefighters are certified as first responders, EMT-Basic, or EMT-Paramedic. Most of our members are certified in the Hazardous materials field, ranging from the awareness to the technician level. We house our apparatus on Arkansas State Highway 107 in Gravel Ridge. We will be accepting delivery of a new engine later this year, but details are unavailble at this time. We are also setting up our own .com website, which is coming soon. If you live in or near the Gravel Ridge area and wish to join our dept, we train every Monday night at 7 p.m. Keep watching, there will be more coming, hopefully the development of our own website, information on our new engine and pictures from training and emergency calls.
