A Message From the Chief

Fire Chief HockThe Del City Fire Department provides our citizens and our visitors with a Professional, Paid 24 Hour Fire Department.  We strive to provide a quality service for all types of emergency and non-emergency responses.  We are proud of our average response time of 3 minutes, one of the best in the Metro area.  In 2013, we took delivery of a new fire apparatus fleet, including a new 77' Quint, two new rescue pumpers, 2 new brush pumpers, a command/communications unit and 2 fire investigative units, made possible by a Bond Election that was overwhelmingly approved by Del City voters in 2011.  Currently, a new Fire Station 1/Fire Administration Building has been designed and construction began in December 2016 and is expected to be complete in December 2017.  This project is possible from the 1 1/2 penny sales tax for capital improvement projects.  We encourage all citizens to make fire safety a priority in their home, school or workplace. Have a working smoke detector near all sleeping areas and on each level of the structure and have monthly fire drills.  Together, we can help minimize the impact of fire on both lives and property.
