Welcome! The Princeton Fire Department is a combination department staffed with approximately forty-five (45) firefighters who are either full time, part-time, or volunteer. Our department serves roughly forty-four (44.62) square miles of incorporated city, and unincorporated county area, plus we have an additional 10 squares miles of Lake Lavon responsibility. We currently have one central station housing seven (7) pieces of primary response apparatus and several support vehicles. All of our full and part-time firefighters hold multiple certifications with the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and are either an EMT or paramedic with the Texas Department of State Health Services. The majority of our volunteers also hold both state fire and EMS certifications. We provide Advanced Life Support EMS and an All Hazards Fire Response capability. These firefighters spend many hours, serving the community, training, and responding to over 2,200 calls annually. In addition to responding to emergencies, our firefighters also provide public education programs and assist the Fire Marshal’s Office with fire prevention initiatives. Commendably, our volunteers do much of this on their own personal time. Our goal is to provide an effective, well trained team of professionals to be there when called upon. Our current Insurance Services Office (ISO) Public Protection Classification (PPC) rating is a 2. We hope this website provides you the information you need.
