Serving our Community
Since 1972

"We Volunteer
Because
We Care"

Our Department was founded in 1972. It began with only 1 truck that was loaned to us by the Alabama Forestry Commission and was stationed in the old bus garage at Rogers High School. Later on, we received a second truck and a station was then needed. We purchased the old Masonic Lodge and coverted it into our new fire station located on county road 47.

In 1980 we build a new fire station, which is also our current station # 1. In 1982 we purchased a brand new Chevrolet mini-pumper from E-ONE for ,000.00. A few years later we received an International Tanker from the Alabama Forestry Commission bringing us to 4 trucks serving our town. In 1987 we purchased our first Class A pumper, a 1961 Ward LaFrance, making our fleet up to a total of 5. After converting a military Jeep truck into our first brush truck, it was selected to represent District # 9 in state competition in Montgomery, Alabama. It was selected as the 1989 "Brush Truck of the Year" in the state of Alabama.

In 1991 we rerated for the first time in our short history and lowered our rating from a 9 to a 7. A few years later we replaced one of our military trucks with a 1980 International Tanker. In 1994 we purchased some land on county road 364 and built station # 2. In 1996 we purchased 2 Class A pumpers, a 1966 Ward LaFrance and a 1971 Ford Young Fire Apparatus. In 1998 we replaced the old International tanker with a 1987 Mack Tanker.

In 2000 we retired all of our debts and then purchase a new pumper from E-ONE. A 2002 GMC Pumper.

In 2002, US President Bill Clinton signed the Fire Dept Assistance Program or better known as the Fire Grant Act which gives Fire Depts financial assistance thru the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Our dept. was one of the first to recieve this grant in its initial year. We recieved a grant for ,000.00 for the purchase of Fire Equipment. We used this grant to bring all 3 engines up to ISO standards.


In 2003 We began a Monthly Fish Fry to help cover expenses. It is held every second Saturday from 4-7 p.m. at Rogers High School Cafeteria

In 2004, we traded in our 1971 Ford pumper for a 1983 Emergcy One PemFab pumper. We also began work on re rating our station for an ISO audit that we hope to have in the near future.
