The SPFD is a combination fire department, made up of career and volunteer firefighters. All are certified through The Texas Commission on Fire Protection and the State Fireman and Fire Marshalls Association. Many members are certified EMT’s and Paramedics, both on State and National levels. The department operates out of a single station, we have fifteen volunteer firemen, four part time, and one full time firemen. The station houses one engine, a rescue truck, and a brush truck. Sansom Park has mutual aid agreements with the surrounding cities of Lake Worth, Westworth Village, and River Oaks.
Our department responds to all types of emergency situations. Fire suppression, emergency medical services, vehicle extraction, and wild land fires. We offer fire inspections and fire prevention presentations as well. Please feel free to contact the Fire Chief if you are interested in an inspection or presentation.
Request for Fire or EMS reports should be made with the Department of Public Safety records clerk, Lori Simmons. You may contact her at the Sansom Park Police Department. You will be asked to complete a “Open records request” form. Please allow up to ten business days after your request has been submitted. The fee for most reports are $6.00.
Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer with our City may come by and pick up an application at City Hall or if after 5pm you obtain an application from the Police Department.
