Message from the Chief

I am very proud and excited to serve as Fire Chief for the Elk City Fire and EMS Department. For over a century, our fire department has provided the citizens and visitors of Elk City with quality, professional, and compassionate customer service. It is no secret that each of our firefighters take great pride in serving the Elk City community and being an integral part of it.

Regardless of the size, scope or complexity of an emergency incident or non-emergency duty, we strive to consistently exceed citizen expectations. Throughout all we do, we see our residents and businesses not just as customers we serve, but as partners in keeping our community safe and healthy.

I am honored and proud to lead a group of firefighters and paramedics who truly care about our community and who want to continue to improve in all areas of our service. Furthermore, without the dedication of our city leaders and its citizens, we would not be the department we are today.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership and know that you are always welcome to reach out if you ever have a question or concern. Your opinion matters, and we are here to serve you.
