GERMS services the communities of West Georgetown, Burleith, and Foxhall. The southern boundaries are M Street and Canal Road, which transitions to the western boundary, Foxhall Road. The northern boundary extends past Burleith up to Calvert Street. Calvert connects to the eastern-most boundary, Wisconsin Avenue. Wisconsin Avenue meets M Street at the southeastern boundary. GERMS crews can also extend these boundaries under special circumstances, such as a dispatch to the movie theater or other university buildings. When in doubt, call—if a GERMS crew cannot handle the location, the dispatcher can directly forward the request to the DC Fire/EMS dispatcher.
