Fire Department

Welcome to the City of Eldon Fire Department. Eldon Fire and Rescue Proudly serving since 1900.

We need your help. If it were not for volunteers, three-fourths of the United States would be without adequate fire protection...including the community in which you live.

Few jobs offer the challenges and rewards that volunteer fire, rescue and emergency services offer. But this business is not for everyone. You need courage, dedication and a willingness to learn new skills. And you need to be able to conquer new and diverse challenges.

As a volunteer, you must meet certain requirements to even be accepted. Then you will be trained to react with confidence to all sorts of emergency situations--from childbirth to fire to hazardous spills.

The work is not all that glamorous, either. It can be hot, sweaty, strenuous, dirty and often hazardous.

In spite of the the hardships connected with the job, the rewards are incredible if you consider respect and appreciation reward enough: Saving a neighbor's home from burning to the ground, or saving a child from injury or possible death. These require acting with courage in the face of danger. And these are the volunteer's reward of personal satisfaction.

So, if you have the strong desire to help, and you believe that you have what it takes to meet the challenges, stop by the Eldon Fire Station and talk to us. Join the team that protects the dreams in your community.

The Eldon First Church of the Nazarene is a shelter in case of severe weather.

It is important to have a plan for every type of emergency imaginable. When our kids are young they are taught to have an escape plan in case of a house fire. Especially this time of year it is equally important to have a plan in case of severe weather.

Communications Department

Communications is the Vital Link

The Communications Department for the City of Eldon has 5 full time employees and 1 part time employee. Our department dispatches for the City Police, Fire, EMA, Animal Control, and Public Works after hours. When the phone rings in the Communications Department it may be an emergency call for help or a citizen just asking a question. Our department averages around 850 calls of service a month. This does not include all other administrative phone calls, walk-ins, or radio traffic that we answer on a day to day basis. We are the first contact many people have when they are in need of the Police or Fire Department. Communications send the appropriate department to each call of service that we receive. Our department plays an important role in assisting the departments we dispatch for. We are a vital link between the departments and the citizens. We are at many times considered the first responders to all emergency calls. We are the first on scene even though we can't see what is exactly going on over the phone. This job is really stressful at more times than others. We take pride in our job and strive to do the very best to our ability. Communications is the vital link to all public safety responses. Communications Officers must be thorough and trained to handle any type of situation that may occur while he/she is on duty.
