About the Station

Serving Our Community

Dry Creek Volunteer Fire Department has been serving our community since 1984. Originally started as a community effort, Dry Creek Fire started with one fire engine, and in 1987 became the first fire station to respond to EMS emergencies in Tippah County. The department now offers fire suppression, light rescue, first response/EMS, public safety education, and more. Dry Creek Fire & Rescue maintains around 30 personnel on duty in three shifts and a fleet of six emergency apparatuses.
