Fire Department

In the spring of 1965, the first fire department in Gordon County, Georgia, was established by Elder E.F. Reifsnyder, principal of Georgia-Cumberland Academy. Over the next ten years more than one hundred faculty, staff, and students volunteered their service to the residents of Gordon County as volunteer firefighters and members of the ladies auxiliary.

GCA enjoys a positive relationship with the community that began when the school opened and established a fire department to assist the residents of the county.
