The Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department is one of the most progressive volunteer fire departments in the State of Texas, and we are always looking for quality people to join our ranks! The members of our department and our town's government officials are committed to providing the best possible Fire and EMS protection to the citizens of our town and surrounding areas of Denton County. The DOVFD is comprised of members trained in fire suppression, rescue operations, and basic first aid. Most of our members are also trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT-Basic), and some hold the Paramedic certification (EMT-Paramedic). This enables us to provide excellent fire protection and medical care during all responses.
Our equipment is the best available and is comprised of two engines and two brush units. Our engines both provide Compressed Air Foam Systems (CAFS), 3.5kW generators, and six-man custom cabs for short turn radius and safety. Both engines provide hydraulic rescue tools, thermal imaging cameras, and automatic external defibrillators ( AEDs). Our Brush units are a 2009 Ford 4X4 with a pump and 250 gallon water tank and a 2009 Ford 4x4 with pump and 300 gallon tank (the latter provided in cooperation with CoServ operation round-up grants!).
