Emergency Medical Services Service Change

The Town of Double Oak contracted with Flower Mound Fire Department to provide the Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance services to the residents of Double Oak. Historically, this service was provided by the Argyle Fire Department. This was a tough decision due to the long working relationship with Argyle Fire Department. Argyle FD provided a timely professional service. Flower Mound FD had advantages that would better serve the Double Oak residents. There were more ambulances in the Flower Mound FD mainly responding from Stations 1 and 4 for the east side and Station 2 for the west end of Double Oak. Each responding FMFD engine is also manned by a paramedic and has the same equipment as an ambulance except the engine cannot transport. The change became effective Friday, September 30th at noon.

Double Oak VFD will continue to respond to all calls in Double Oak.

Do I still dial 911 for emergencies?

Absolutely! Dial 911 if you need assistance for Police, Fire, or Medical emergencies. The changes have been made in the dispatch system to send the appropriate agencies. Again, Double Oak VFD will respond to all emergencies within Double Oak.

Why does the ambulance remain at the scene several minutes after the patient is loaded? The ALS ambulances today are in essence a rolling emergency room. Once the patient is in the ambulance, the paramedic may do some additional evaluations on the patient, administer fluids or medications prior to leaving for the hospital. It’s safer for the paramedic and the patient if the ambulance is not moving during that time.

Please send us an e-mail at station e-mail if you have any questions or you can leave us a message at 972-539-7683.

Outdoor Burning

From the Chief….
I’ve had a few calls over the past couple of weeks about the procedure for burning tree limbs and brush in the Town of Double Oak. The following is the procedure for getting a permit to burn within the Town Limits.
  • default_titleYou must call the Denton County Fire Marshal’s Office at 940-349-2840 or log onto their website and fill out an Application for Open Burning Permit.
  • default_titleThe determination, if it is a Burn Day, is done every morning between 8 am and 9 am. This determination is done by the Texas TCEQ and not the Denton County Fire Marshal.
  • default_titleOnce you have the permit, you are cleared to burn. It always better if you call the Double Oak VFD (972-539-7683) and leave a message that you have a permit and will be burning. Please remember to leave your Name, Address and Phone Number.
  • default_titleYou can only burn limbs and brush. No construction materials or any other products can be burned.
  • default_titleYou must remain with the fire at all times and have a water hose in the area if the burn gets out of hand. All fires must be extinguished by sunset.
  • default_titleThe smoke from the burn must not cause a nuisance to your surrounding residences. This can be controlled by not starting with a large fire, but starting with a smaller fire and adding limbs and brush to it as it burns down.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at the Fire Department (972) 539-7683.
