Welcome to Rolling Hills Lakes Volunteer Fire Department
Rolling Hills Lakes VFD was organized in 1989, incorporated in 1990 with Randy Thompson as chief. The first pumper was an USAF crash truck which was housed in a temporary fire station. This temporary fire station was a horse barn on the property of Bubba Trotman.
In 1991 when Gene Flourmoy was the chief a used 1965 Mack pumper was purchased. In that same year we obtained a Dodge 4X4 brush truck and a GMC 5,000 gallon tanker from the Alabama Forestry Commission.
Late in 1993 we purchased a 1993 E-One Freightliner with a 5 passenger commercial chasis, 1,000 gallon pumper. The next year we purchased a 1994 E-One F250, 250 gallon mini-pumper.
In August of 1994 the department moved from a temporary fire station to our present station that is modeled after a "Kentucky Horse Barn." Our present fire station has a total of 7,200 square feet. Our bay area is 6,000 square feet with 6 bay doors. We also have a training wing with a full kitchen which is sometimes used as a community room. On the opposite side of the training wing we have the operations wing with offices, day room and sleeping quarters.
In 1995 while Rusty Cantrell was the chief we purchased a reconditioned E-One 1982 Imperial, 750 gallon pumper.
In 1997 John Treat was our chief. We purchased a 1998 Ford-250 Super Duty pick-up truck with a slide-in pump/tank unit. In March 2001 we purchased a 2001 Freightliner 1,850 gallon tanker.
We would like to thank our community for their support and contributions. Without them we would not have all of the above
