Community Volunteer Fire Department was established on April 12th, 1971. Initially, the department utilized a fire engine loaned by the City of Houston Fire Department which was housed at an Arco Service Station on the corner of Bissonnet St and Boone Rd. Accumulating funds from door-to-door donations, department members hand built our first fire station near the same intersection, which opened later that year. Our department has come a long way since 1971 and we are proud to honor those who worked so hard to get us here.
