Mid-County Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1983, in Caldwell County Texas. Our purpose is simple; to provide fire protection to an area in the county that was caught between jurisdictions. In 2009. we changed our name to Mid-County Fire/Rescue to reflect our expanded capabilities. Our dedicated all volunteer membership protects about 3000 residents, as well as anyone who may travel through the area. We have a mix of commercial, residential, churches and schools within a 56 square miles of rural Caldwell County. On May 9, 2015 the voters of our area approved the creation of an Emergency Services District #4 (ESD) within the boundaries of Mid-County's response area. This ESD will provide funding support for rural fire protection.
We are located between the cities of Lockhart and Luling, with our coverage area being split by US HWY 183. Our typical emergency responses are to wildland fires, motor vehicle collisions, structure fires as well as EMS (Emergency Medical) calls. Mid-County Fire/Rescue membership has over 140 years of fire experience. Our members hold over 120 different certifications ranging from State Firefighters and Fire Marshals Association, Texas Commission on Fire Protection, Texas Department of State Health Services, Texas Division of Emergency Management, Federal Emergency Management Agency and Texas Forest Service.
