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. You can read more about the last 50 years on our history page.
