Calls For Help

A roll-over accident near Lake Kickapoo.

Lake Kickapoo might look to outsiders like a community where personal safety has been forfeited for quiet living on the lake and in the country. Our nearest hospital is roughly 34 miles away and a 40-minute drive (one-way).

Fast and competent help, however, is just minutes away. A call to 9-1-1 sets in motion an incredible help providing apparatus. Emergency 9-1-1 calls are answered by Archer County Sheriff Department dispatchers. Trained professional personnel prompt callers for information which is immediately documented and a dispatch made. If an individual can dial the emergency number, but cannot speak, specialized Caller-ID-type devices can automatically pinpoint the location of the call's origin. A sheriff's deputy may be sent, fire departments notified or, in the event of a medical emergency, an ambulance or even a helicopter will possibly be dispatched.

For Lake Kickapoo area fire and medical emergencies, the county almost always tones out our volunteers and dispatches the Lake Kickapoo Volunteer Fire Department and often an Archer County Deputy Sheriff, ensuring the most speedy and adequate response possible. In most Lake Kickapoo emergencies, members of the Lake Kickapoo Volunteer Fire Department will be the first help to arrive.

Thanks to trained, and dedicated volunteers, Lake Kickapoo is better protected than one might think.
