Progress and Stewardship
The Citizens and Leadership within the City of Siloam Springs have entrusted the Fire Department to carry out a vital mission. Therefore, we at SSFD feel it most important to track our progress and convey these ongoing improvements to help communicate our stewardship and show our efforts in honoring this partnership.
Welcome to the City of Siloam Springs website and more specifically, the Fire Department page. Our City is situated on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border in Benton County Arkansas. This creates unique challenges and opportunities to partner with a variety of intergovernmental and tribal stakeholders to provide Fire and EMS beyond our city limits. I am so very proud of how the leadership of our City and the members of our organization continue to rise to this challenge by providing superior fire and life safety services both inside and outside our City. We also enjoy a fantastic relationship with our citizens who (thru referendum election) entrusted us with a 10 year, Public Safety portion of an already existing sales tax that is scheduled to sunset in 2023. Within this Capital Improvement Program we have already replaced and relocated a fire station and have made great progress replacing old equipment and rolling stock. Please follow our progress as we continue our practice of making the most efficient use of public funds, and maximizing our opportunities to better serve the region.
