The slogan of the Atoka Fire Department (AFD) is "protecting what matters most" - but it's so much more than a slogan. It is, in fact, a way of life for the dedicated professionals that protect the residents and businesses of Atoka. Established in 2014 and standing up as an operational Department on July 1, 2015, the Department provides primary protection for nearly 10,000 area residents from Atoka Stations 3, located on Walker Parkway.
The Department is comprised of a mix of paid and volunteer fire fighters and is led by Chief Henry Posey and Lieutenants Bill Clark and Bill Scott. The Atoka Fire Department is staffed with 10 medically-trained first responders, including 5 Paramedics and 5 Advanced EMTs.
The AFD responds to all types of emergencies including structure fires, wild land fires, vehicular accidents, search and rescue missions and a host of mutual aid situations. The Department responds with a fleet of three engines, one brush truck and various support trailers and smaller equipment. Automatic aid agreements provide access to a platform aerial pumper, additional engines and brush trucks.
Beyond fire suppression and rescue services, the AFD provides fire safety inspections for all businesses in the community twice a year, maintains a fire hydrant system of more than 600 operational fire hydrants and provides emergency weather notification through a nine-siren civil defense alert system .
