Welcome to The Grassy Knob Volunteer Fire Department.

We serve the Grassy Knob Community on beautiful Beaver Lake near Eureka Springs, AR. 

We have a lot of fun here and we want to make sure you have a great time, too... by keeping safe!

C​ontrolled Burns Must Be Controlled!
Please see instructions from the Chief, right
Controlled Burns:

If you are going to do a controlled burn you must call 1-870-423-7373 our non emergency dispatch line to inform them. It is best to burn during the daytime. When there is a burn at night many folks see it and call 911. 

We will respond on any call we are dispatched to but consider a controlled burn called in to 911 as an honest mistake. Our volunteers serve the community and receive no compensation. Thank you for your consideration. 

Robert McVey, GKVFD Fire Chief
IS THE BURN BAN ON?
Each year we respond to rescues on the river when the Corp. starts generating. Even though some hear the sounding of the horn they fail to get out in time. We would respond with life jackets and a throw rope but stand on shore and look like idiots with no way to reach the victim(s). Grassy Knob Vol. Fire Assoc. has now purchased a river rescue boat. It is 20'9" and very stable. The motor has no propeller but rather a jet for propulsion. This boat should serve The community for many years to come!

He Didn't Make The Curve
Grassy Knob Vol. Fire Dept responded to a roll over on 10/11/18. A dump truck carrying 21 tons of dirt failed to make a curve and rolled over a hill. Miraculously, the driver was not injured in any manner. 
The truck of course is totaled. Medic personnel were canceled.
