Welcome to the official web page of the Oakland Fire Department. We do appreciate your interest in the Town of Oakland Tn, and in the Towns Fire Department. The Oakland Fire/rescue Was founded in 1977 when the Town’s population of about 400 citizens. They recognize and understood the need for an organized Emergency response system for the Town, so the Oakland Fire/Rescue was born out of a Volunteer system. That system has grown and evolved with the Town, that now has a population of around 10,000 citizens, and another 5,000 people it protects in its Fire District.
