June 22, 2012 - Moore’s City Manager, Steve Eddy, has appointed Gary Bird as the Moore Fire Chief, effective June 30, 2012.   Chief Bird fills the position that was vacated by Chief Charles Stephens who will retire on June 29th after 32 years of service with the City of Moore.   

     For the first 27 years of its existence, the village of Moore had very little protection from the disaster of fire. Public water well was dug at the intersection of Main and Broadway, shortly after the town was founded. When a fire occurred the entire town rallied to help, setting up a bucket brigade line from the well to the fire scene.
     Early years of reporting fire alarms were given by firing three pistol shots. During the 1940’s and 1950’s, after the town had a fire station, alarms were given by a piercing siren, subsequently replaced by the present telephone-alert system.

More than 3,000 people die in home fires each year in the United States; most of whom are in homes without a working smoke alarm. To prevent these deaths, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), a division of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is sponsoring a nationwide Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign designed to raise awareness about how working, properly installed smoke alarms can lower a person’s chances of dying in a fire. Moore Fire Department is supporting this critical effort to reduce injuries and the loss of life.
