Our Commissioners

The Griffin Fire Department operates under the legislative authority of three fire commissioners, each elected to six-year overlapping terms. The Board of Fire Commissioners is responsible for establishing key policy, setting levies, developing and adopting the annual budget, reviewing and approving contracts, and appointing a fire chief.

The Board meets the second Thursdays of each month at Station 13-1. The meetings are open to the public.

Changes to the meeting schedule and Meeting Agenda will be posted at Headquarters Station. Meeting Minutes are available by request by calling (360) 866-9000.
