About FFD

about

 

We are a combination fire department comprised of 1 career staff and 13 volunteers and operating out of two fire stations. We currently have six fire apparatus that are ready to respond to any emergency.

We have automatic mutual aid agreements with both Central Taney County Fire District and Western Taney County Fire District for assistance.

We try to keep our community safe by promoting fire prevention campaigns throughout the year with programs like smoke detectors, extinguisher training and our new arrival, Sparky, to protect our community’s most valuable resource – our kids.

As of January 1st, 2010, our ISO rating is 4 for most areas of town. We respond to approximately 300 calls for service per year. About 80% of those are medical emergencies.

Our average volunteer puts in 20 hrs per month in training and other duties. We actively recruit for volunteers to serve as Firefighters, Explorers or member of our Auxiliary.

We strive to make our community a safe and secure place for the visitors and residents of the City of Forsyth.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us regarding any questions or concerns you may have.
