The City of De Queen has an excellent volunteer fire department with three full-time firefighters and 28 trained volunteers. The main station is located at 219 North Second Street across from city hall. Station 2 is located at the U of A Cossatot campus on West Collin Raye Drive. Our Department is well equipped with one 75-foot aerial and three pumper trucks, three brush trucks, one with CAFS system, one 2,500-gallon tanker also equiped with CAFS, as well as a rescue apparatus fully packaged with extrication equipment which is used for the north half of Sevier County. The Fire Department serves a five-mile radius of De Queen, including industrial plants and wildland fire suppression.
Currently, we have a class four (4) ISO rating. This rating helps to keep insurance rates low for homeowners and businesses. We are very proud of this rating and thank the City of De Queen for helping to reach this milestone.
