Fire Suppression – Government Contracts
GFP Enterprises 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.
The U.S. Forest Service’s annual Contractor Performance Review declared we “are comparable to any agency Type 1 Crew. They (GFP) have raised the bar for all fire contract crews with a crew that needs limited supervision and performs outstanding work.”
