Atoka, Three Star Execute Agreement for Automatic Aid
Posted on Monday July 20, 2015
The Town of Atoka and the Three Star Fire Department have executed an agreement to provide automatic and mutual aid between fire departments effective immediately. The Atoka and Three Star Fire Departments, though operating separately, will begin working together to protect life and property in South Tipton County.
The Board of Aldermen of Atoka have given approval to a new aid agreement between the new Atoka Fire Department and the Three Star Fire Department.   The agreement is similar to an agreement executed last month between the AFD and the Munford Fire Department and provides automatic, immediate response by both departments to any structure fire within the corporate limits of either department. In the event of a fire outside the corporate limits or some other emergency, the Departments have committed to provide mutual aid on an as-needed basis.

"This agreement extends our fire protection partnerships across South Tipton County and means that, together with our partners in Munford, we will be there to provide resources to better protect our friends and neighbors," said Atoka Mayor W. Daryl Walker.

As of July 1, 2015, there will be twice as many full-time, professional firefighters serving the citizens of South Tipton County as there was on July 1, 2014. The multi-year effort to enhance fire funding and protection has led to the creation of the Atoka Fire Department and the hiring of 13 new full-time fire fighters in Atoka. In addition, 5 of the firefighters hold Paramedic certification and another 5 hold EMT-Advanced certification - providing the best in pre-hospital care to our residents.

The Atoka Fire Department began providing fire protection in Atoka on July 1.
