Message From The Chief

Beginning June 4th, Fairview Road will be closed between N. Rockingchair Road and Cherokee Lane. This closure is due to roadway repairs being performed by street department personnel and is expected to last a few days. Please plan ahead for this temporary closure and leave yourself plenty of extra time for the necessary detour.

About the Department

The Paragould Fire Department (PFD) covers approximately 31 square miles and provides fire, rescue, and emergency services to the residents and visitors of the City of Paragould.

The Paragould Fire Department consists of 30 full-time firefighters and 10 relief drivers. The PFD currently operates four fire stations.

  • Station One is located at 1405 W. Kingshighway and contains the administrative offices.
  • Station Two is located at 1505 E. Lake Street.
  • Station Three is located at 4818 Walcott Road.
  • Station Four is located at 3406 Linwood Dr. next to the Community Center.
All of our members are trained as Hazmat Technicians and must do several hours per year of continuing education to keep that certification. The PFD is equipped to respond to hazmat incidents, confined space rescues, and many other incidents that may arise other than fires.


The PFD is committed to the education of our children. Each year near Fire Safety Week the Fire Department hosts approximately 2000 3rd and 4th-grade students from Greene County and Southeast Missouri with the Fire Safety House, a mobile facility used to teach children how to prevent fires as well as how to get out safely if a fire were to occur in their home. During the year we visit with numerous schools, daycares, and scouting groups to teach fire safety.
