The squad room is located in the basement of Wyoming Hall in the A quadrant. Access to the squad room is made by entering a marked door from the outside loading dock area.

How much do GFR members get paid?

GFR is an all volunteer agency and we do not charge for our services.

I'm interested in joining GFR, but I do not have any training. What should I do?

Previous training is not a requirement for membership, and all applicants are considered each application period. However, we do encourage all individuals interested in GFR to get training by enrolling in an EMT class or getting an AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers CPR certification.

I'm interested in the EMT class, but do not know much about it. Can you help me?

Livingston County hosts an EMT class every semester. This class is not affiliated with the college and is located in the Center for Emergency Operations and Training Center in Mt. Morris (about a 10 minute drive from Geneseo). The class is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-10PM and some Saturdays from 9AM-1PM.
