Staffing for the agency is comprised of 15 paid and 20 volunteer firefighters. The department provides fire prevention, fire suppression, hazardous materials response, and technical rescue activities for the citizens of Glenpool and the surrounding area. Apparatus inventory includes two pumpers, one rescue pumper, one aerial platform truck and two wild land fire vehicles. A wide array of mission-specific equipment is carried on each of these vehicles. The main station is located at 14536 S. Elwood Avenue in the new Public Safety Building. This facility features five bays and a multi-story training tower.

The Glenpool Fire Department improved their community’s Public Protection Class by nearly 30% and received an impressive ISO re-classification of 3 in August 2011.
