District 2 Fire and Rescue provides quick and effective fire protection and rescue service to the citizens of our district. Some of the ways that we may come to your aid are fire suppression needs, vehicle extrications, animal rescue, swift water rescue, or simply education. We respond to a wide variety of calls for service that even include EMS First Response. Our department currently holds an ISO rating of 6 due to our response times, and large amounts of water that we can bring with us to any scene. Our last evaluation from the Insurance Services Office was in 2010. This evaluation is completed every 10 years, but we have not been reevaluated due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020.
We currently operate a fleet of 1 1,000 gallon Engine, 1 2,500 gallon Pumper/Tender, 1 Type 6 Brush Truck, 2 Type 4 Brush Trucks, and a Command/Utility Vehicle. We are also patiently awaiting the build and arrival of our newly ordered 3,500 gallon Pumper/Tender from Pierce Mfg.
We also have a wide variety of rescue tools that we can use to help in almost any situation we may face in the field. These tools include almost anything from Edraulic extrication tools and lift bags to everything needed to rappel down the steep bank of the San Antonio River to help a stuck kayaker.
