Welcome to the Wedington Fire Department

 

As of February 1, 2005, Wedington is rated as an ISO Class 5 Fire Department.

Telephone:  We have an answering machine for messages when no one is at the station.  Your call will be returned as soon as possible.

  Firefighting: Who puts out fires?  Members who have volunteered as firefighters (both men and women). No one is paid for this; they simply believe in being good neighbors.  Several have trained at the Arkansas State Fire Academy in Camden.

Medical Aid: Our First Responders and EMTs (Rescue Unit) can’t answer medical calls directly, but they respond to medical emergencies when called by Central EMS.  They often arrive before the ambulance and give emergency care to the patient.  When the ambulance arrives they assist the paramedics.  If you need an ambulance dial 911.

 Auxiliary:  Mainly fundraisers – they hold an annual breakfast and supper to buy firefighting equipment or improvements for the station.  They take food and/or drinks to firefighters at lengthy fires and telephone members 2 or 3 times a year to inform them of coming events and projects.

Newsletter: This is mailed out in April and October.  Compiled by volunteers and mailed to area residents.  It contains news about past and upcoming events, and general information about the Fire Department.  Your comments are welcome.
