About Us

Wilson County Emergency Services District #2 (WCESD#2) is a political subdivision of the State of Texas. The District was formed by a vote of the people through a referendum placed on the ballot of the November 2, 2010 General Election. The measure called for the creation of an Emergency Services District to administer the provision of fire services and emergency medical services within a defined geopolitical area.

The formation of Emergency Services Districts (ESD) is statutorily authorized through Chapter 775 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. The purpose of the ESD is to provide funding for the administration and operation of local emergency services. Operations may be provided directly or through utilizing support from existing resources. The code defines the governing body, the roles and responsibilities of the ESD, and the taxing authority of the District.

The five members of the Wilson County ESD#2 Board of Commissioners met for the first time in February 2011. The Board of Commissioners is creating a new government entity, assessing the needs of the community, and planning for the operational, administrative, and functional responsibilities for the provision of fire and emergency medical services.

In 2016 the district expanded its borders from 26 square miles with an additional 13 square miles to incorporate the unserved areas of City View, CR 325, 326, Tower Lake area, and CR 128.
