The Weatherford Fire Department has the best fire insurance rating of any city under 50,000 in Oklahoma. This lofty, state-bestowed rating means that Weatherford businesses and property owners can be assured they are saving money as they insure their property against fire. Fourteen full-time and fifteen volunteer firefighters work at the 14,000 square foot headquarters at 118 North Kansas Street. Fourteen pieces of fire equipment, including a new 5,000-gallon tanker and a brush pumper, are at the firefighters’ disposal. Because of the high-rise buildings at the university, the department also has three aerial trucks for high rise rescue and fire suppression.

Weatherford Fire DepartmentThe department boasts 10 emergency medical technicians (EMTs), nine with training on heart defibrillators. The department’s rescue squad carries the most current tools for accidents with injuries. The fire department has certified instructors on staff who are available for CPR classes, by appointment. In addition, a full-time Fire Inspector and Fire Marshal are employed.

When they are not training or responding to an emergency, Weatherford firefighters love to clown around-literally. During fire prevention week each fall, firefighters trade in their protective gear for clown garb, putting on shows in areas schools that illustrate fire prevention. Other aspects of community outreach include a smoke detector program, a bicycle rodeo for children, and an alcohol awareness program that Weatherford firefighters have performed to great acclaim in secondary schools around the state.
