Community Programs & Services
In addition to the emergency services, our department also engages in a variety of community education programs aimed at fire prevention and life safety. Please contact us if you would like additional information about our services, or stop by to visit us at the fire station. We would love to talk to you!
Our primary mission is to provide emergency fire and medical services, but we are also dedicated to providing life safety and educational programs to the public that effectively reduce identified community risks. The educational services and programs our department provides vary to meet the needs of our citizens of all ages and are geared toward educating the public in fire safety and awareness. Our department is always ready to assist with any public concerns and answer questions that may arise. Here are a few of our programs. If you have any questions about any of the following programs, please call 682-237-2947.
Have your blood pressure checked FREE at the Fire Station. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms. In fact, many people have high blood pressure for years without knowing it. That’s why it’s called the “silent killer”. Stop by the fire station and a firefighter will be glad to check your blood pressure for free. If no one answers the door, please call the station at 682-237-2940 or stop by at another time. Firefighters are always on duty but they may be on an emergency call.
The Trophy Club Fire Department’s objective is to ensure that all children in our community are riding safely. We encourage you to call or stop by the fire station to make an appointment to evaluate your current car seat(s) or assist you with installing a new one. Please call Anita Otterson at 682.237.2947 to schedule an appointment.

In 1999, Texas became the first state to pass a safe haven law for infants. Also known as the Baby Moses law, this law gives parents who are unable to care for their child a safe and legal choice to leave their infant with an employee at a designated Safe Place. For more information on the Safe Place program visit our website.
Home fire safety inspections are conducted, by request, throughout the year to reduce the number of fire and safety-related hazards in your home. Trained fire fighters survey the property and provide written recommendations to improve safety conditions while offering fire safety awareness advice. For more information about a Home Fire and Life Safety Inspection visit our website .
For a Foster Family Home Inspection please visit our website.
Our firefighters welcome guests into the fire station as part of our community outreach. Fire station tours are conducted for church groups, schools, social clubs, mom’s groups and other organizations. Our Firefighter/Paramedics also visit each elementary school, preschool and daycare every October for Fire Prevention Month. The children learn about fire safety and get to tour the fire truck. For more information or to schedule a tour visit our website.
The Citizen’s Fire Academy (CFA) is a unique opportunity to educate the public about the fire service and provide insight into everyday fire department work through a hands-on approach. Graduates of the Academy are eligible to participate in the Trophy Club Emergency Volunteer Association (TCEVA), a group that supports the Fire and Police Departments. For more information on CFA visit our website.
The Trophy Club Emergency Volunteer Association (TCEVA) serves under the umbrella of both the Police and Fire Department. The group provides support through various activities including traffic control, First Responder Rehab at emergency scenes, assistance at Town events, COP Patrols, and clerical assistance. Membership may be obtained by any person who has graduated from the Trophy Club Citizens Police Academy, the Citizens Fire Academy or other training program approved by the Trophy Club Police Chief or Fire Chief and is contingent upon application of a successful background check. Final approval and continued membership is at the discretion of the Trophy Club Police Chief and Fire Chief. Learn more about TCEVA.
The Trophy Club Fire Department periodically holds Family & Friends CPR classes. These classes are for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. The course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life.
You can also schedule a Family & Friends (non-certified) class or a class for CPR certification for your group of 5-10 students. Certification classes are $35 per person.
Learn how and when to use a fire extinguisher to keep a small fire from becoming a big fire, along with other fire safety tips. Sign up for a free Fire Extinguisher Class at the fire station or we will be happy to schedule a class for your small group of 5-10 people, ages 12 and up. Contact Brian Peters at 682-237-2947 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
