we respond to a variety of fire emergencies including structural, wildland, brush, electrical, and vehicular.

any situation and our strong relationships with our neighbooring emergeny agencies allows us to respond effectively and efficiently to any emergency in our district.
A car accident can be a very scary time, especially if someone you love is injured.

Our community is not only a great place to live, but also a great place to do business. There are dozens of local businesses that call Verdigris their home. Many of these business handle hazardous materials. Additionally, with the railroad and multiple high-traffic highways in our district, the potential of tanker spills is present. We train extensively to respond to chemical leaks & spills and frequently train with regional response agencies to be prepared at any given moment.
One thing we all know about Oklahoma is that it can be full of a lot of unknowns! Our crews train to respond to natural disasters including tornadoes, earthquakes, flooding, and high winds. Additionally, we train in response proceedures for active-shooter and terrorism attacks. While the average person would rather not even think about a horrible event like this happening, we believe it is our duty to be prepared, rather than be surprised. We stand ready to respond at a moments notice.
We believe that the best way to be close to our community is to be out "in it". That's why you'll see our crews at local events, school functions, business community days, church events, local parades and local eateries. In addition to just visiting with those in our community, we work to educate our children and area citizens how to prevent emergencies and how to respond to an emergency if one does occur. Fire safety starts with us, and we don't take that responsibility lightly!
