Comprised of approximately 300 dedicated men and women, the Community Volunteer Fire Department is an all-hazard, full-service agency that responds to over 12,000 calls annually. We proudly provide fire protection, emergency medical service, technical rescue, hazardous materials response, and a variety of other services to the public.
As a combination department, our staff consists of both paid and volunteer members who fully staff our stations 24 hours a day. Formed in 1971, the Community Protection Agency acts as the department's board of directors. Additionally, CVFD's services are contracted by Harris/Fort Bend ESD #100 who is ultimately responsible for providing fire and EMS services to the area.

The ISO rating system takes into account a fire department’s response time, training, staffing levels, and the fire dispatch system. The rating system also includes an analysis of the water delivery system of the area controlled my Municipal Utility Districts.
More than 50,000 fire departments are graded by ISO, and currently there are only 75 agencies in Texas and 411 in the United States that have earned a Class 1 rating. Our department continues to maintain the best overall coverage to ensure our public safety needs exceed expectations.
