Fire Department

The El Dorado Fire Department is responsible for the protection of the City of El Dorado, and contracts with the El Dorado Township, and the Western portion of Prospect Township.   Through these contracts the Fire Department is able to generate revenue worth over half of its annual operating expenses.  It also contracts to provide Hazardous Materials response to all of Butler County.   The Department takes pride in serving its jurisdiction, and providing the Citizens of El Dorado with an outstanding service  at a lower expense that would normally be found in a City of comparable size.
