Washington County Fire Department is a volunteer fire suppression agency with responsibility that covers all of the unincorporated area of Washington County. The department has 16 firefighting positions, 3 wildland engines, 1 tanker/tender, 2 utility patrols, and 2 inflatable rescue boats. Our department specializes in wildland fires but responds to all types of calls including structure fires, hazardous materials, traffic accidents, search and rescue, water rescue, severe weather, just to name a few.
WCFD has 2 stations. One located in the Oak Park neighborhood in Bartlesville and the other at the Washington County Emergency Operations Center.
We are also the lead department for the Washington County Wildland Task Force and have deployed to assist in large wildfires all across the state of Oklahoma and have even responded to assist our neighbors in the State of Kansas.
Our funding comes from the Washington County Commissioners and from an operational grant provided by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture along with grant funds from the Cherokee Nation. We also rely heavily on fundraisers and grants from any source we can find.
