Fire Department Responsibilities
Cabot Fire Department is responsible for the prevention and suppression of fires within the City of Cabot, Arkansas with a resident population rapidly escalating past 26,000 people. The Insurance Services Office awarded the department a Public Protection Classification of 2/2X in 2016. Additionally, we respond to rescue and medical emergencies in our city.
Fire Stations / Personnel
Our department operates from four staffed stations. Each station houses at least one fire engine and a host of other apparatus, vehicles, and equipment. The department currently has 41 full-time and 7 part-time firefighters. Our full-time firefighters are trained to a minimum certification of Firefighter II, Emergency Medical Technician-Basic, and Hazardous Materials-Operations. Part-time firefighters are trained to a minimum level of Firefighter I and First Responder.
The department has seen dramatic growth since its beginnings as a volunteer department turning career in 1994. As the needs of our community change, our operations continue to evolve and expand. We eagerly welcome the challenges of that growth and feed on the energy it provides. I am proud to present to you the professional and courageous people who make up one of the finest departments in Arkansas.
I hope you enjoy your visit to our web site and invite you to stop by any of our fire stations for a personal visit.
