  • Fire Station 1
    Fire Station 1, also known as Central Fire Station, opened at its current location in 2003. It is the fifth central fire station since the founding of the Denton Fire/Rescue Department in 1874. The building was once home to Denton’s first power plant and has been completely renovated to house many of DFD’s administration and emergency operations center, along with being a working fire station.

    Central Fire Station is Denton’s largest station. It is home to a medic unit, and engine, Reserve Truck 11, a truck company, and the east-side Battalion Chief supervisor, bringing the minimum daily staffing to ten personnel. 

    Central Fire Station also houses the heavy rescue apparatus, which is staffed by the truck company, to carry specialized equipment for confined space, trench, structural collapse, and high angle rescue operations. All personnel assigned to Station 1 are required to be trained in these rescue disciplines.

    The Station’s response district encompasses downtown Denton, including the Square, Southeast Denton, the Oak & Hickory Street Historical district, and TWU.

    Central Fire Station is also the location of the Denton Firefighters Museum. The Museum, which is in the foyer on Hickory Street, houses firefighting artifacts from Denton’s past with instructional displays showing the equipment and operational advancements of firefighting.

  • Fire Station 2

    Originally located at 1515 N Elm St., Fire Station 2 has served the citizens of Denton proudly for more than 80 years. The original Station 2 building closed in 1970 in order to strengthen manpower at the other stations (1 and 3); however, in 1978, Station 2 reopened at the corner of McKinney Street and Mockingbird Lane to address the growing population of Denton. After almost 40 years of service, that building was replaced with the current Station 2 in 2017, which is still located at the same intersection of McKinney Street and Mockingbird Lane. 
    Station 2 houses a variety of apparatus, which includes:
    •    Engine 2
    •    Medic 2
    •    Brush 2
    •    Command/Rehab bus
    •    Swift water rescue boat
    •    Reserve Engine 12
    •    Reserve Medic 12

    To operate the frontline Engine and Medic units, a crew of five to six firefighters staff the apparatus in three different shifts (A, B, and C Shift).

  • Fire Station 3
    New Fire Station 3 at 1401 Underwood is on the property adjacent to where the second Fire Station 3 was located, built in 1970 to replace the original on Ave B in 1929. This new facility is over 16,000 square feet and houses a medic unit, fire engine, a small Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting truck (ARFF 3), and a second Battalion Chief, who supervises the stations on the west side of the city. The station is built for future growth and will eventually house a second truck company. The station has 3 Officer’s quarters and dorms for 8 firefighters and a student. Minimum staffing at this station is 6 firefighters daily.
    Station 3 serves UNT, I35/Airport Road/Western Center industrial parks, several miles of I35, and covers the Denton Enterprise Airport. Station 3 firefighters are trained in Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) and are the primary crews for  ARFF 9, a 3000-gallon specialized ARFF truck housed at the airport for aircraft and fire response in that area.

  • Fire Station 4
    Denton Fire Station 4 protects the northeast area of Denton.  District 4 is roughly north of University Drive and east of Locust Street extending in both directions to the city limits and into some of unincorporated Denton County.

    The original station 4 was built in the 60’s and proudly served for over 50 years.  Its crew moved across the street to New Station 4 in June 2018.  The new station provides much needed room for additional apparatus and crew and is also designed with an emphasis on efficiency and firefighter safety. 

    District 4 has begun to experience rapid growth that is mostly residential.  With this growth, call volume has increased and will continue to do so.  The room for additional crew and the addition of Medic 4 couldn’t have come at a better time to serve Denton’s citizens for the next 50 years.
    Station 4 is staffed with 5-6 personnel and is home to:
    • Engine 4
    • Medic 4
    • Brush 4
    • UTV 4
    Old Station 4 has been repurposed to store and provide Uniforms and Protective Clothing for the entire Fire Department.  The three station Captains have been assigned Quartermaster duties and keep Denton’s Bravest uniformed and protected with state of the art firefighting gear from head to toe.
