The removal of rugs and clutter, and the installation of hand rails can help to prevent falls. For more information, classes, and resources, check out the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC).

WhyWhy does a fire truck respond when I only asked for an ambulance?
The fire trucks are staffed by paramedics. The trucks are frequently able to arrive more quickly than ambulances and initiate critical care. Many Advanced Life Support procedures require two or more paramedics to perform. Patients may fall and become stuck in awkward locations. They may be in the upper level of a home and unable to walk down stairs. Some patients are very heavy and unable to walk. All of these situations require extra personnel to assist with safe patient movement.
Why are there fire trucks or ambulances parked at the grocery store?
The Grand Chute Fire Department crews work 24 hour shifts. They are either on calls or at the Fire Station for the entire shift and obviously need to eat sometime. Crews go to local grocery stores to buy meals for the day (crews pay for their own meals, not the Town). This allows them to make healthier meal choices than most take-out or delivery food. Even when they are at the store, crews are still on duty. They will immediately drop their shopping and respond when called.
Why do I sometimes see fire trucks from other departments in Grand Chute?
The Grand Chute Fire Department, like most Fire Departments, has Mutual Aid Agreements. This means that Fire Departments in neighboring communities send trucks to help out when there is a major incident in the Town, such as a large fire, that requires more resources than the GCFD has available. In return, the Town sends trucks to help our neighbors when they have major incidents.
