Mission Statement

The Goal of the Arlington Fire Department is to protect life and preserve property by providing competent fire and EMS services to the Town and Community, as safely and effectively as possible.

The Arlington Fire Department
Arlington Fire Station 71 is currently home to sixteen full-time firefighters including the Chief and Assistant Chief. The Town of Arlington currently has an Insurance Services Organization (ISO) rating of Class 3.

Arlington Fire Department is proud to provide fire and emergency services to its over 13,000 citizens, covering 26 square miles within our city limits. Arlington Fire Department receives and provides automatic mutual aid as needed with the Shelby County Fire Department, as well as any neighboring department upon request. The Arlington Fire Department is dispatched by the Shelby County Fire 9-1-1 dispatch center.

The Arlington Fire Department has one fire station which responds with one fire apparatus staffed with a minimum of four (4) personnel.  We are in the process of building a second fire station south of Intersate 40 along Airline Road.  


All Arlington firefighters are Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and 94% of those are IV certified. The Arlington Fire Department strives to maintain an Advanced Life Support (ALS) response.  We have a paramedic assigned to each shift.  We contract with the Shelby County Fire Deparment (SCFD) to provide an ALS ambulance to the Town. The SCFD staffs the ambulance with one paramedic and one EMT.   

We have several firefighters who are members of Tennessee Task Force 1 Urban Search and Rescue Team, a highly trained FEMA national disaster response team. Those members obtain additional training in technical rescue disciplines such as swift water, trench, structural collapse and rope rescue (low and high angle). Arlington Fire Department has two state certified fire inspectors and eight state certified fire instructors.
