The Town of Double Oak
is located approximately 20 miles north of Dallas, Texas and is primarily a residential community with about 2,800 residents. With future commercial development, the growth of neighboring communities, and continued development in town, our department will continue support more calls for help in the future. The DOVFD responds to many different types of emergencies including: structure fires, grass fires, fire alarms, vehicle fires, medical emergency, motor vehicle accidents, hazardous materials incidents, and other types of emergencies. Our department currently consists of 29 all volunteer membership, we are proud to still be able to offer 24 hour emergency services 365 days a year to our residents.
The average response time for the DOVFD in the town limits of double Oak is six minutes. In addition to responses within the Town of Double Oak, DOVFD also covers certain areas of Denton County that surround Double Oak. We also have mutual aid agreements with the surrounding cities of Argyle, Bartonville, Copper Canyon, Flower Mound and Highland Village to both provide and receive assistance as needed. The Denton County mutual aid plan also provides for mutual aid across the county as needed for large-scale incidents. This plan was activated in September 2000 when DOVFD and other departments responded to a hardware store fire in downtown Sanger, and again and Roanoke, Texas during November 2001 for an aircraft hangar fire. The DOVFD has also responded out to the county during the busy wildland fire seasons responding into both Wise County and Montague County. We are also on standby during the 2006 wildfire seasons to respond to Texas Panhandle to assist with wildfires there.
