Crews and Equipment
Welcome to the Trophy Club Fire Department, located at 295 Trophy Club Drive. The Trophy Club Fire Department was initially established in 1982 as an all-volunteer organization. Today, the department has transitioned to include 15 professional Firefighter/Paramedics and 17 part-time professional Firefighter/EMTs. Our staff is committed to serving the community and providing the highest quality protection for your family and property through the effective management of fire suppression, emergency medical incidents, hazardous materials incidents and natural or man-made disasters.
We rely on our mutual aid agreements with neighboring cities for every major incident, including house fires. The Roanoke Fire Department and Westlake Fire Department are our closest aid, so you may see them responding to a fire in town, or to a medical call if our ambulance is already in service. By the same agreements, we cover their calls when necessary. In addition to Roanoke and Westlake, we also provide and receive aid from Southlake, Flower Mound, Grapevine, Keller, and other local communities.
In 2000, Trophy Club joined the North East Fire Department Association (NEFDA), a group of fourteen communities in the northeast part of Tarrant County. The member cities of NEFDA formed an alliance because they recognized that while there is a need for specialized /technical services, it is not economically feasible for each city to provide the necessary staffing and equipment for these services. Through NEFDA a regional plan was developed in which each city pays into the consortium and commits to providing a certain number of on-duty personnel with the specialized training to allow a technical team to be quickly assembled. Ongoing joint training helps ensure that the team members are ready when called. The current available resources include:
• Hazardous materials response
• Technical rescue including a trench, confined space, and high angle
• Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD or Bomb Team)
• Mass decontamination
• Mass casualty response
• Mobile command post
• Light and air support
• Swift water rescue
• Urban search and rescue
NEFDA owns and operates a number of specialized pieces of equipment, which are housed throughout the member cities. Half of the NEFDA cities provide Technical/Rescue personnel and half provide Hazmat/Decontamination personnel. The Trophy Club Fire Department has 12 certified Hazardous Materials Technicians on staff. Please see the NEFDA website for more information.
What is ISO?
The Insurance Services Office, Inc. is an organization that classifies fire departments through an extensive rating system. The goal of ISO is to accurately rate the community’s fire suppression system which includes water distribution, fire department equipment and manpower and fire alarm facilities. The final grade is translated into a Public Protection Classification (PPC) system. Almost every insurance company utilizes PPC codes in establishing premiums for both commercial and residential property policies. Public Protection Classification ratings go from class 1, representing the best public protection to class 10.
