Since 1930, the Edgewood Community has benefitted from having an organized volunteer fire department.  The volunteer group is dedicated to saving the lives and property of the citizens of Edgewood and surrounding areas by responding quickly when called.  The department provides a high quality of fire protection, rescue and training as the firemen are a well trained team qualified to administer first aid and have attended fire-fighting schools.

Funding of the department is through the City of Edgewood, Van Zandt County, grants, annual fundraisers and donations.  Their main fundraiser is a chili supper, offered in January at the Fire Hall.
