Thanks to the hard work of the Gentry Fire Department, in 2018 most residents within the Gentry Fire District will have a lower ISO (Insurance Service Office) Rating of 4. 
We now have 4 stations to better serve all those in our fire district. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our Fire Dept. which continually strives to improve responses to fire emergencies. We also appreciate the ongoing support of our Fire Dept. from our citizens.
I want to thank all of those that make Gentry a great place to live and work!
Sincerely,
Kevin Johnston, Mayor
