Emergency Services Districts (ESD) are political subdivisions of Texas that are entrusted with providing emergency medical and fire services to many unincorporated areas of the state. Because emergency services districts are political subdivisions of the State of Texas, they are required to comply with all of the open government laws in addition to the health codes and regulations of emergency services providers. An ESD is governed by a board of commissioners who are appointed by the County Commissioner of that district for two year staggered terms. All members must own real property or be a registered voter in the district where they serve.
We are only able to accept volunteers that have current TCFP Firefighter Basic and TDHS EMT certification due to our auto-aid agreement with the Austin Auto Aid Coalition.
