About the Fire Department
The Fire Department has 3 engines, 1 ladder truck, 1 brush truck and 2 administrative vehicles. We have 17 members on the roster who are mostly volunteer. The Fire Department has a part-time program that employs two firefighters on duty 7 days per week, 24 hours per day.
The Inman Fire Department has been in operation since the late 1800s but was formally chartered in 1926. Back then, a group of volunteers were responsible for providing fire protection for the citizens of Inman.
After 1926, the Fire Department started to purchase used fire trucks and piece them together to provide fire protection. The Fire Department purchased its first, new truck in 1946. Today, firefighters must take over 250 hours of training to become certified. Plus, the training never stops with advanced fire technology.
We are involved with all local schools, churches and nursing homes doing fire prevention programs and training. Our personnel provide fire protection, first aid response, auto extrication, wildland fire protection, rescue as well as building inspections for businesses. Our firefighters take pride in the Department and strive to provide the very best service we can for our citizens and the City of Inman.
