The City of Pratt has established a fire department that consists of a fire chief, assistant chief and as many firefighters as the City Manager deems necessary.

The members of the fire department are volunteers and will meet for the purpose of practicing drills when the Fire Chief requests it; provided that it's not more than once per week.

The Fire Chief is a position that is appointed by the City Manager. He or she will have the following duties:

  1. Will be under the supervision of the City Manager;
  2. Supervises and is responsible for the care of all fire equipment;
  3. Ensures that the fire equipment is ready for immediate use at all times;
  4. Submits a written report to the City Manager, once each year, as to the condition of the fire equipment;
  5. Will be responsible for the discipline of members and is given authority to suspend or expel any member for refusal to obey orders or for misconduct or failure to do his or her duty at a fire;
  6. Has the right to summon any and all persons present to aid in extinguishing the fire or to aid in removing personal property from any building on fire or in danger;
  7. At fires, he or she will have full power, control and command of all persons present and will direct the use of the fire equipment and command the firefighters to carry out their duties;
  8. Takes all measures that he or she deems proper and necessary in the preservation and protection of property and extinguishing of fires.

In the absence of the chief, the assistant fire chief performs all the duties and has all the same authorities and responsibilities of the chief.

The fire chief keeps, in a convenient form, a complete record of all fires. Such information includes the time and location of the fire, construction of the building, owner, occupancy, how extinguished, value and contents, members of department responding to the alarm and any other necessary information. He or she will also be able to provide this written documentation to the City Manager when it is requested.

It is also the duty of the Fire Chief to adopt reasonable measures for the prevention of fires. If he or she has reason to believe that the safety of life and property is an issue, the fire chief may enter any building, yard or premises in the city during reasonable hours for the purpose of inspection, as often as is necessary. Where dangerous, unsafe or hazardous conditions are found to exist, he or she will direct for the change, removal, better care or management of the issue by the citizen responsible, at their own expense.

All fire equipment and volunteers with red lights and sirens are given the exclusive right-of-way on any public street or thoroughfares in the City of Pratt while enroute to any fire. No one is allowed to hinder their response to these situations.

Any person who interferes with the use of firefighting equipment or members of the fire department (except when otherwise directed by a police officer or the fire chief) will be in direct violation of city fire codes.

No person or group will use any of the city fire equipment for personal use. Further, no one is allowed to borrow or keep any of the fire department's equipment or tools.
