Tioga VFD covers approximately 49 sq. miles in the southwestern corner of Grayson County, Texas. The department is comprised of 15 volunteers providing education, fire suppression and medical first response to the service area, utilizing three engines and two brush trucks. Also providing tanker support to the Grayson County Fire Chiefs Association Tender Task Force.
The Department is under the leadership of Fire Chief Paul Rodarmer with the support of Assistant Chief Ken Smith, Captain Elvin Fisk, Lieutenant Billy Smith and Lieutenant Richard Hartman.
The Tioga Volunteer fire department was founded in March of 1936 by 12 individuals. The department has always been small but very community involved. In the spring of 1988 the volunteers had a new station built across the street from City hall where we are still housed to this day. TVFD hosts two community events every year; the Annual 4th of July Celebration and the Breakfast with Santa followed by the Christmas Parade.
