USAR 2

Take a look at the new Springdale Fire Department USAR 2.

The City of Springdale is a diverse and friendly community. As the fourth-largest city in the state of Arkansas, Springdale has almost 80,000 residents and is located in Washington and Benton counties in the northwest corner of the state at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Springdale is 42 square miles with more than 900 lane miles.

Springdale is a great place to catch a ride on the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad in a beautifully restored turn-of-the-century passenger car, downtown Springdale, AR also home to the Shiloh Museum, which offers Ozark history and buildings dating back to the 1850s.

The Springdale Fire department serves the community with an all-hazards approach which means they respond to both man-made and natural disasters including Emergency Management, EMS, Fires, Hazardous Materials and Rescue.
