Fire Department

 The mission of the City of Pearl Fire Department is to provide all occupants of the city, a well maintained, trained, and equipped fire control force to provide fire suppression, fire prevention and emergency rescue activities in an effort to reduce the loss of life and property.

The Department will, to the best of its ability mitigate, prepare for, and respond to those in need of emergency assistance as a result of fire, entrapment, medical emergency or other life threatening situations.

The fire department maintains 57 firefighters and fire officers, who are diverse in their training from high angle rope rescue to hazardous material incidents. All are trained in fire suppression techniques, technical rescues, and emergency medical incidents. These individuals are augmented by six administrative personnel. The fire department also currently has 12 nationally registered paramedics, three nationally registered EMT-Advanced, and one nurse.

The City of Pearl Fire Department currently utilizes four fire stations, which are fully operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Ambulance service in Pearl is provided by Pafford Medical Services.  The ambulances are co-located at the Pearl Fire Stations to expedite response times.
