Membership in the Grapevine Citizens Fire Academy Alumni (GCFAA) is open to all graduates of the Grapevine Fire Department's Citizens Fire Academy. Grapevine Fire Department (GFD) has graduated 15 classes through its Academy with Class 16 set to begin in February 2014. Following the completion of Class #1, graduates were interested in continuing their relationship with GFD and looked at how CFA graduates in neighboring communities had done so. Several had formed alumni associations and Grapevine graduates quickly followed suit. GCFAA became a way for citizen volunteers to help GFD and our community in any way the GFD found appropriate.
