Chief's Message

On behalf of the dedicated men and women who make up the City of Farmersville Fire Department, welcome to our website. We hope that you find the information you need and that it is useful for you as our customer. The Farmersville Fire Department is a “Combination Fire Department” meaning we serve the community with both career and volunteer members. The Fire Chief and 3 Fire Officers are fulltime employees,while the other 25 personnel are volunteers who contribute their time and effort to protect their neighbors from the ravages of fire and other perils.
“The Mission of the Farmersville Fire Department is the Protection of Life, Property, and the Environment from the effects of Fires, Medical and Rescue Emergencies, and Other Hazards. This is accomplished through Comprehensive Emergency Response, Code Enforcement, and Public Education Efforts in a cost effective manner by utilizing career and volunteer personnel”.

The Farmersville Fire Department holds a respectable Class 4 Rating from the Insurance Services Office (ISO) which evaluates fire department capabilities and water supplies for fire protection as they pertain to fire insurance premiums. The current improved class 4 rating is as a result of a recent audit conducted by the ISO. Previously, the city held a class 5 rating . This change should result in significant insurance savings to residential and commercial properties. Please join me in keeping our community a safe place to live, work, and play as our personnel continue a proud tradition of service.


John A. Crivello, Fire Chief
