Among the different aspects of fire service many of our current thirty-six fire personnel are specially trained to handle are water rescue, high angle rescue, rapid intervention rescue, confined space rescue and hazardous materials.

We are proud to have members that hold some of the highest certifications the Mississippi Fire Academy has to offer. The protection of our citizens and their property is our highest priority.
Full-time emergency medical technicians and paramedics are relied on to staff the two ambulances that serve the city. Our EMTs and paramedics are also trained in various specialties of their field. We have in-house CPR instruction, basic trauma life support technicians, advanced cardiac life support technicians and personnel trained in pediatric advanced life support. Our emergency medical staff works hand-in-hand with fire personnel to render life-saving care during rescue operations. Training of EMS personnel is a large focus for our department. As we grow, we seek better ways to meet the needs of our citizens with professional patient care.

Fire Safety Trailer
This is a mobile classroom, which was purchased with the assistance to firefighters grant in 2005. We took delivery of the trailer in June 2006, and have been running programs ever since. The trailer has a kitchen, bedroom, and a burn room. We use the kitchen for most of the fire and life safety lessons. The bed room teaches kid how to escape a fire by using their window. We can demonstrate a residential sprinkler system in the burn room. This classroom also has the capability of doing a sever weather simulation, teaching the community how to react and prepare for a tornado. We have used this program at Churches, restaurants, and schools. This program is available any were in De Soto County. To schedule this program contact Chief Casey at 662-342-0858. You need to schedule at least two (2) months in advance.

Fire Extinguisher Training
This class is designed primarily for the commercial community, Day cares, and churches. It is intended for the adult population; however we will allow people in class as long as they are at least 16 years old. It teaches you the proper way to use your extinguisher and how to inspect your extinguisher.
This program targets the high school kids, age 14 -21, they come to the station and work with the firefighters. This enables them to make a more informed decision as to weather or not they really want to do this for a career. Within this program is EXPLORING HOPE, a toy drive for the less fortunate children in Horn Lake. While we can’t help them all we do try to help 4 – 6 kids each Christmas.
