Welcome to the Official Red Oak Community Rural Fire Department website. Our goal with our website is to provide as much information as possible about our services and to help us maintain an open means of communications with our community. We hope that the site exceeds your expectations, and as always we stand ready to serve.



Red Oak Fire Department is a full-service, high performance, emergency service agency. Our history of dedicated service dates back to the founding of our community more than 50+ years ago. 

On May 15, 1961, a small number of concerned farmers gathered in a home on Dickenson Avenue to establish a formal fire protection plan for their community. Thus began what is today known as the Red Oak Fire Department. Residents and business owners continued to build the community’s fire protection resources through the purchase of more firefighting equipment, and eventually purchasing their first fire apparatus in 1962.

Even in those days, Red Oak was a leader in the provision of community services. Throughout the early years, Red Oak experienced several major fires that tested the capabilities of the fire department. New equipment and the need for more volunteers.

Today, Red Oak Fire Department is one of the most respected and high-performing fire services in the county. In 2010 we received a fire protection classification rating of Class 5/9 from the ISO. Our firefighters and part-time staff feel it is our obligation to not only provide our citizens the absolute best and highest levels of service but to advance our profession and exceed expectations.

Our C.A.R.E. Values, Mission and Vision

Our Mission

The Mission of the Red Oak Fire Department is to protect and preserve our community through prompt, professional delivery of services.

Our Vision

Our vision is that by the end of year 2016, the Red Oak Fire Department will be widely recognized as an organization which utilizes best practices in the delivery of services to our community. Our intentions are to promote continuous improvement and validate the consistent, timely, and quality services our community trusts us to provide.

In honoring our community’s trust, we are committed to providing effective, efficient, fiscally-responsible service while presenting COMPASSION and EMPATHY as we perform our duties. We will expand our internal and external communications and information dissemination initiatives so that our priorities, philosophy and operations are clearly understood by our community members. By proactively identifying our community’s evolving risks, and the dynamic demands of those risks, we will improve our response capabilities while implementing resource and deployment strategies carrying the best interest of our community in accomplishing our mission.

Our internal culture will reflect a RESPECTFUL team atmosphere nurtured by open internal communication processes providing greater information sharing and involvement in decisions to accomplish our mission. Our planning efforts will embrace the diversity reflected by our community, improve the quality recruitment and retention, and promote development for the future success of our volunteers. Our dedicated members will convey integrity in our commitment to excellence by demonstrating professional and courteous delivery of services to all those living, working, or visiting in our community.

Our leadership and volunteers will be ACCOUNTABLE to one another in applying our organizational mission and values, while continuously striving to reach our goals. Emphasis will be placed upon gaining consensus and ownership with organizational issues thereby assuring continued job satisfaction and excellent customer service. Employee safety and preparation will be a priority accomplished through our community hazard and risk preplanning efforts.

We will expend time and energy towards developing the best strategies for service delivery while enhancing programs through training and personnel development. The effective management of our physical resources will allow us to explore all opportunities to implement new and better utilized technology to improve the quality of support and operational services.
