Fire Department

Shield
The American fire service is built upon tradition, respect, honor, and dedication to the service of others. Waxahachie Fire-Rescue has enjoyed a rich history of serving the citizens, visitors, and businesses of the City of Waxahachie as a career organization since 1922. The reputation of this department is one of excellence and professionalism. 

With the support of the citizens and businesses of Waxahachie, Mayor, City Council, our City Manager and his staff, as well as the other City departments and supporting governmental agencies, we continue to be an exemplary organization that prides itself on being proactive, efficient, and exceptionally effective in our delivery of services.

While we are blessed to be supplied with the very best equipment and training available, nothing can take the place of our most important asset- the men and women of this Department who dedicate their lives to serving others. With this in mind, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our members for the exceptional service they provide on a daily basis as well as to their family members for sharing them with this Department and the City of Waxahachie.

In a team effort, we are committed to provide the best possible proactive approach to fire and life safety, prevention and education. We will pursue excellence in every aspect of our mission. Our goal is to continue to work together to make our city a safe and productive environment for all concerned. In doing so, every citizen can be ensured that our mission will be accomplished in a fashion which reflects this Department’s dedication to outstanding customer and community service.
