Rural Fire Memberships
The De Queen Fire Department is now offering rural fire memberships to cover the cost of a fire call outside the City of De Queen, but within the De Queen Fire Service area. Membership is $50 per year for each property covered. Arkansas law requires cities to attempt to collect the cost of fire calls outside the city limits. Currently, the cost is $350 for a grass or brush fire and $500 for a structure fire. In case of a fire, rural fire members will not be asked for additional fees above what insurance will pay. Memberships are only offered for property within the De Queen Fire protection area. For more information, call 870-584-7224. Click here to view the Rural Fire Membership Agreement.
