"West I-10 was created to fill a need in
our community and over 36 years later...
we're still filling that need."
West I-10 FD is a non-profit organization founded in 1979. Currently we're a self funded department without a 911 contract located in Katy Texas, on the outskirts of Houston. The lack of a 911 contract gives us flexibility in how we can help the community and surrounding fire departments.
For example, we assisted the greater Houston community with relief and rescue efforts associated with Hurricane Harvey.
We evacuated over 2,000 citizens, assisted local fire departments, assisted local law enforcement, assisted the National Guard, opened a donation site for items needed by victims, fed over 1,500 first responders and evacuees with local partners, and housed evacuees at our fire stations, and performed many other tasks.
