Raymond Fire Department
Fire Chief Mike Wilson
Assistant Chief Andrew Arthur
In 1832, Raymond Fire Company #1 was formed by a group of local merchants and willing residents of the community. Their efforts were the beginning of a life saving and property protection organization that has evolved into the department that we see today. The Raymond Fire Department (RFD) is 100% Volunteer today, just as it was in 1832.
The department serves as first responders to approximately sixty-five to seventy square miles of Hinds County, including the City of Raymond. The RFD has the responsibility of protecting hundreds of lives of residents, students, employees, and prisoners, in addition to the millions of dollars invested in the area.
The RFD responds to fires and calls for emergency medical assistance from its station located at 109 West Court Street, Raymond.
Raymond has a Fire Insurance Rating of 8. The city and surrounding area are served by 2 13,000 gallon Tanker/Pumper Trucks and 3 rescue units.

We all come from the past,
and children ought to know
What it was that went into their making,
to know that life is a braided cord of humanity
stretching up from time long gone,
and that it cannot be defined by the span
of a single journey from diaper to shroud.
