THE FLOWOOD FIRE DEPARTMENT STARTED AS VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION AND HAS DEVELOPED INTO THE ONLY CLASS 5 PROFESSONAL FIRE DEPARTMENT IN RANKIN COUNTY. WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE ALL FIREFIGHTERS TO COME AND VISIT OUR DEPARTMENT WHENEVER THEY ARE IN OUR AREA. THE FLOWOOD FIRE DEPARTMENT SERVES A COMMUNITY OF MOSTLY INDUSTRIAL/COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES.

THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO FD 9 TONY TADLOCK WHO LOST HIS LIFE IN THE LINE OF DUTY ON THE MORNING OF APRIL 3, 1988, IN AN ARSON FIRE.

HE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED!!

Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God

Where ever flames may rage

Give me the strength to save some life,

Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child

Before it is to late;

Or save an older person from

The horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert,

And hear the weakest shout,

And quickly and efficiently

To put thr fire out.

I want to fill my calling and

To give the best of me;

To guard my every neighbor and

Protect his property

And if, according to your will

I have to give my life;

Please bless with your protecting hand

My children and my wife.
