The Laredo Fire Department was established in 1885 as a professional firefighting organization. Over the years, it has grown and seen many changes. The changes seen have taken on the form of the evolution of firefighting tactics to the modernization of equipment used on a daily basis.
Today, our department has increased to a force of 357 firefighters that staff 14 fire stations strategically located across the City. The fire department will continue to grow and strengthen as the demand for emergency services increase.
