JGMFD Fire Operations provide fire protection services to the Cities of Grimes, and Johnston, as well as, unincorporated areas of Dallas and Polk County. JGMFD participates in mutual aid agreements with surrounding communities to provide assistance when needed.
To ensure a standardized response to incidents, the Polk County Fire Chiefs Association created the Tiered Emergency Assets Management System (TEAMS). JGMFD participates in TEAMS as a means to standardize our response to incidents and reduce confusion in the early stages of a rapidly developing incident. This system is primarily utilized for reported structure fires and incorporates automatic aid into our initial response. Additionally, the creation of TEAMS Cards establishes pre-determined alarm levels that aid command officers at these incidents in requesting resources from dispatch by requesting incidents be elevated to the next alarm level.
