Holtville/Slapout Fire & Rescue Inc.
Holtville, locally and fondly known as 'Slapout,' is a rural community located on Lake Jordan in Northwest Elmore County, AL. The Holtville/Slapout Fire and Rescue unit serves roughly 6000 people living in a 25 square mile area. This area includes approx. 22 miles of river and two main bodies of water. We also have 3 schools in our district. The Holtville High School, Holtville Middle School and Holtville Elementary Schools of the Elmore County School system are the only schools not covered by a municipal fire department. Our department is a public department whose 30 members are 100% volunteer. We run out of 1 station that is located in the middle of our district. The HSF&R runs 2 engine companies, 2 tanker units, 1 light rescue, 1 service truck, 2 brush units, a john boat and a fire/rescue boat. Our Department uses the drop tank shuttle operation for our water supply method which has allowed us to achieve a flat ISO rating of 5/10 throughout our district.
The light rescue is set-up for quick response on medical calls and is an ALS non-transport service. It also has the Holmatro Rescue System on it for extrication.
The Holtville/Slapout Fire & Rescue runs automatic aid with the Lightwood Fire Department, Deatsville Fire Department and Elmore Fire Department. When these Departments are called out for a structure fire we will automatically be called out also.
We also run mutual aid with Wetumpka Fire Department, Millbrook Fire Department, and Coosada Fire Department. HSF&R is called out when requested by these departments.
