Dallas Fire-Rescue covers 378 square miles and a resident population of 1.2 million people. The department operates 55 Fire Stations, the 9-1-1 / 3-1-1 call center, Fire Dispatch, Fire Prevention, Education and Inspection (FPE&I), Arson and Fire Investigation and The Office of Emergency Preparedness. The Dallas Fire-Rescue Department has come a long way since its beginning in 1872. In those one hundred and thirty years, we have grown from a 14-member volunteer “Company Number 1” to a progressive, professional organization. The department currently has 1,670 uniformed members and 265 civilian support personnel. This evolution into one of the largest and finest departments in the country was not a quick or easy process. Many tragedies have occurred; many heroic deeds have been performed; and many dedicated people have devoted their lives to a career of serving people.
