The Beaver Lake Fire Department provides fire, emergency medical, hazardous materials, and technical rescue service. Founded in 1979 as a volunteer fire department, the Beaver Lake Fire Department is now a combination paid/volunteer department with 20 members, two fire stations, and a training center.

    The Beaver Lake Fire Department is committed to providing high quality fire and life safety service in our community thereby enhancing the quality of life for our residents, businesses, and those who are visitors to our district. Quick, efficient service is our goal for each and every customer. Our two strategically located fire stations allow us the opportunity to provide cutting edge fire suppression and rescue response in a remarkably short time frame.

    Included in the Beaver Lake Fire Department are the Operations, Fire Prevention, and Training Divisions.

    The Beaver Lake Fire Department covers approximately 29 square miles of unincorporated Benton County in northwest Arkansas. We are adjacent to Beaver Lake just east of the city of Rogers. The unincorporated communities of Prairie Creek and Beaver Shores are within our boundaries. We also cover one of the largest marinas in the state, the Prairie Creek Marina. Over 400 boats as well as 50 houseboats are moored there. We also cover more than 200 miles of shoreline as well.
