The Snowflake and Taylor Fire Departments were joined by an Intergovernmental Agreement in 2015.  Station 2 (the Snowflake location) is located at 325 West 4th Street South.  While firefighters are often working at the station, as a volunteer department, the station is not manned 24 hours per day.  Firefighters carry radios and respond when needed.  Our response area covers approximately 450 square miles.
