The mission of the Coppell Fire Department is to serve the citizens and business community of Coppell by preserving life, property and the environment through the efficient delivery of education, prevention, public service, emergency response, code enforcement and administrative activities.


Beginning in 1957, the Coppell Fire Department began providing volunteer emergency response to the community of Coppell, Texas.  In the past 50 years, the department has grown from a volunteer department to a fully paid professional staff with 1 Chief, 3 Deputy Chiefs, 3 Battalion Chiefs, 12 Captains, 12 Engineers, 57 Firefighters/Paramedics, 1 Fire Investigator, 1 Emergency Management Officer,and 2 Administrative Services personnel.  The department provides multiple services to the community that include, but are not limited to:

  • Fire Protection

Fire Department Divisions

The Fire Department provides emergency and non-emergency assistance to the community 24-hours per day, seven days a week.  The Fire Department organization is composed of five divisions designed to reduce the community's risk and potential loss from everyday emergencies such as a fire or medical emergency to a wide-scale event such as a tornado.  This is achieved through various preparedness efforts, planning, public education, inspections, fire code enforcement, and fire pre-planning efforts.  Each division is responsible for specific goals and objectives directly related to the services they provide.


To better serve the community, the Fire Department is divided into the following divisions:

  • Executive Administration
  • Operations
  • Prevention 
  • Support Services



Fire Chief Kevin Richardson is the Chief Executive Officer for the entire department and provides the overall direction and guidance of the department.



Deputy Chief Gregg Loyd directs the Operations Division, which consists of the various emergency, non-emergency, and training services provided by the Fire Department.



Deputy Chief Tim Oates directs the Prevention Division, which consists of fire prevention, public education, and fire investigations. 



Division Chief Tim Russell directs the Support Services Division and is responsible for maintaining the Emergency Medical Services, including assigned resources and personnel, in a state of operational and legislative readiness.
