Thank you for visiting or website.  We hope you receive the insight into our organization and the services we provide to our community. 

Olive is an unincorporated community located in northwest Creek County.  The post office was established November 20, 1896, and discontinued September 30, 1938.  The town was named after the first postmasters' daughter. Olive was the birthplace of Leon "Jack" Guthrie, a songwriter and performer whose rewritten version of his cousin, Woody Guthrie song "Oklahoma Hills, a 1945 hit. On June 8,1974, a F4 tornado wiped out the town.  Olive is well known for the water well located in the center of town and for the convenience store called "Happy Corner Store."    

The department was unofficially established in 1988 in a member's barn with one homemade fire truck.  On May 28, 1993, the department became state incorporated and certified Title 18 volunteer fire department. 

Today we are an all-hazards department operating from one station covering 44 square miles with a budget supported from fire protection agreements, service fees, donations, fundraisers, grants and a newly voted 1/6th of a cent shared county fire protection sales tax. We are an IRS 501(c)3 public charity organization meaning all donations are tax deductible.  We respond to approximately 100 calls for service annually with an ISO Public Classification 5/10 rating. 

Our mission is to "help those who are in need" and our vision is "a team of well-trained professional members with the knowledge and resources to control any situation given that will enhance the safety of the citizens and visitors of Olive."

Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm at the fire station open to the public unless otherwise noted.
