Our Fire Department serves roughly thirty-nine square miles of incorporated city, and unincorporated county area. We currently have one central station housing thirteen pieces of apparatus. The Department is staffed with approximately 35 firefighters who are either full time, part-time, or volunteer. Most of these Firefighters hold both a firefighter and EMS certification with the State of Texas. These volunteers spend many hours of their own personal time serving the community, training, and responding to over 1,400 emergency calls annually. Our goal is to provide an effective, well trained team of professionals to be there when called upon. In addition to responding to emergencies, our firefighters provide public education programs and assists the Fire Marshals Office with fire prevention initiatives.
