The Lincoln Fire Department is comprised of two parts, the City of Lincoln Fire Department and the Lincoln Rural Fire Association. The department has a substation in Cincinnati, Arkansas, and the main station on the east side of the square, next to city hall.

Currently we man a staff of 30 firefighters and are running 10 trucks, 3 of which are tankers. We also man a rescue boat and emergency water rescue equipment. The Lincoln Fire Department partners with Central EMS which houses its service out of the Lincoln Fire Department.

The fire department has two senior positions, the Fire Chief, Willie Leming and Fire Administrator, Jay Norton, who is full time with the City of Lincoln.
