Thanks to these officials and all who serve in Denton County.

Double Oak’s Fire & Police Departments

Our small town is fortunate to have dedicated and highly qualified leaders and officers/firefighters serving within our Public Safety Departments. Every day I see these heroic men and women protecting our town and providing service to our businesses and residents.

Our Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department operates under the leadership of Fire Chief Scott Whisenhunt who has served on the department for 20 years.

Kathy Heimerdinger serves as the Assistant Fire Chief and has been with the department for 15 years.

Bob Bowen is the Battalion Fire Chief and has 23 years of service on the department.

Recently appointed Police Chief Ruben Rivas has 15 years with the department and 21 years in law enforcement.

Assistant Police Chief Cassandra Gaines joined the department in January after retiring from Flower Mound with 27 years of service and has 28 years in law enforcement.

Detective Sgt. Clint Murphy has been with the Double Oak Police Department for six years and has 25 years in law enforcement.

Our community is truly blessed with caring and dedicated firefighters and police officers in each department. Be sure to wave and tell our firefighters and police officers thank you when you see them.
