When to Call 911
All 911 calls in Dallas County except for those from the City of Perry are taken by the Dallas County Sheriff's Office Communications Division.
This guarantees that if local police, fire, rescue, or EMS resources are not available for any reason, the closest available county or city units will respond quickly.
See more details of the 911 system at the Dallas County Sheriff's website.
Dallas Center Fire & Rescue proudly serves a population of 2,500 people in Dallas Center and adjacent rural areas of Sugar Grove, Adel, Grant and Walnut Townships.
We are a volunteer service providing 24 hour on call fire suppression, rescue, emergency medical and related emergency services to the community.
We operate out of one station located at 1502 Walnut Street. Our apparatus includes two pumpers, one tanker, one brush/quick attack truck and one rescue unit.
Our department is able to serve the community as a result of the countless hours of volunteer service provided by our members who live and work in the Dallas Center area.
Our volunteers commit several hours of their time each month responding to emergencies, attending training and meetings, and maintaining our department's equipment.
Volunteering as a firefighter or first responder is a big commitment but very rewarding. Are you interested in volunteering?
We welcome applications from potential new volunteers. Applications can be obtained from City Hall. At this time, we are particularly looking for volunteers who would be available to respond to calls during the daytime Monday - Friday.
