The Rockwall Fire Department has added six new full-time firefighters to their team. The increase in staffing levels is a move to continue to enhance the service level the department provides.
The City of Rockwall operates a combination department, with full-time and part-time/volunteer staff. As the city grows, the need for more full-time staff has increased. Also, in 2017 the RFD became a limited First Responder Organization, responding to major medical emergencies. This role has increased call volumes significantly, and has already proven invaluable in saving residents’ lives.
The additional on-duty members will help the department continue to provide quality service and enhance the safety of Rockwall residents and visitors to the community.
