GFP Response

The quality and quantity of equipment and personnel
to quickly respond to any emergency. 

In addition to fighting fire every year nation wide, mobilizing and operating full service, turnkey base camps, and providing experienced and qualified Incident Management Teams and skilled labor to all types of incidents and remote work sites is an integral part of our business.  We maintain a large inventory of facilities and resources at key logistical locations.  We provide the customer with a wide range of available resources, including soft sided solutions, trailer solutions, and hard sided solutions.

Our  people possess the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) training and the experience to deliver world class emergency services under stressful, often-chaotic circumstances in often less -than desirable environments.  GFP possesses the quality and quantity of personnel and equipment to quickly respond to any situation.


“[GFP is] comparable to any agency Type 1 Crew. They have raised the bar for all fire contract crews with a crew that needs limited supervision and performs outstanding work.”

Remote Base Camps

Mobilizing teams in remote areas can be expensive, if not impossible, when you consider difficult commuting and the lack of water, facilities and food.

GFP’s Remote Base Camp solutions enable organizations to operate in areas without any infrastructure, including the National Guard and FEMA. We’ve been called upon time and time again by government agencies and private companies to establish remote camps to shelter and feed soldiers, clients and employees during:

  • Military Exercises
  • Recovery Missions
  • Pipeline Construction
  • Energy Exploration
  • Emergency Response Exercises and Training

Our first responder backgrounds prepare us to respond in times measured by hours. We deliver safety, performance and professionalism through out base camp management and operating procedures. Our people and equipment stand ready to help you achieve your objectives.

GFP has been fighting wildland fires as a private contractor since 1988. We cut our teeth in the Pacific Northwest saving old growth stands. Our safety, performance and professionalism quickly earned us invitations to battle fires in every Western state and many Eastern states.  Including as far away as Florida.

Our 20-person initial attack hand crews are some of the best trained in the industry. We train more than 500 firefighters each year in the Incident Command System.

GFP’s hiring practices and training have paid big dividends. We’ve earned NIFC’s Best Performance Award for a National Type II Initial Attack Contract Crew – the only contract provider to win this prestigious award.
