Buda Volunteer Fire Department - 1956

History. Heritage. Trust.

Established in 1956, the Buda Fire Department has a rich history of providing fire suppression to a 75 square mile area of northeast Hays County, including the cities of Buda, Kyle and Hays. We are situated 15 miles south of Austin, Texas along the Interstate 35 corridor. Hays County is among the fastest growing of counties in the state of Texas.

The Buda Fire Department became part of the Northeast Hays County Rural Fire Prevention District (NEHCRFPD) in 1985 which allowed the fire department to be funded by tax money. In July of 2003 this was converted to Hays County Emergency Service District #8. In October 2010, Hays County Emergency Service District #2 contracted with the Buda Fire Department to provide Emergency Medical Services as well to the growing area.

The Buda Fire Department has approximately 47 career firefighters and paramedics, a career Chief, a Fire Division Chief, an EMS Division Chief, a Fire Marshal, and a Fire Inspector who respond to an average of 4000 calls annually out of three fire stations. Station 1 houses our administrative offices and reserve apparatus. Stations 2 and 3 are staffed 24 hours a day/365 days a year with career firefighters and paramedics manning one engine company and one ambulance. All of our career staff are commissioned by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and are certified as Emergency Medical Technicians or Paramedics by the Texas Department of State Health Services. The Buda Fire Department is a member of the State Firemen’s and Fire Marshal’s Association and is compliant with the standards established by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection.

In addition to Fire and EMS services the Buda Fire Department strives to be an excellent community partner by conducting, Free Smoke Detector programs, child seat safety checks, Fill the Boot for the MDA, as well as attending many annual Buda events.
