About the Department
The Stafford Fire Department is a combination department manned by a team of 87 dedicated firefighters led by Fire Chief Larry DiCamillo. The department holds a superior "Class 1" ISO insurance rating, held by less than 1% of all Fire Departments nationally. A Class 1 rating is only achieved by committing to the highest standards of protection for the community and our firefighters. The department responds to an average of 200-300 incidents per month and provides staffed fire companies around-the-clock 24-hours a day, 7-days-a-week to protect the lives and property of area residents and businesses. Fifty-five % of incidents are fire-related, ranging from large building fires to car fires, fire alarms, and burned food on a stove. The remaining 45% of calls are EMS incidents to assist those injured or sick. These incidents range from childbirth to heart attacks, to broken arms, and other traumas.
Stafford firefighters are trained in the latest fire suppression, emergency medical, hazardous materials, and structural collapse techniques. The Department provides automatic-aid assistance to the cities of Missouri City and Sugar Land, as well as mutual-aid assistance to other departments throughout Fort Bend and Harris Counties.
Covering 10.2 square miles, our department response area offers many challenges. Included in this response area are traditional residential neighborhoods, apartment complexes, hotels, shopping centers, large industrial and commercial warehouse developments as well as major roadways, freeways, railroads, and 2 below-grade roadways.
Part of the normal coverage area includes 3 areas outside of the City of Stafford that are covered by our department by written agreement as part of our 1st due response area. The Neighboring city of Meadows Place, unincorporated areas of Fort Bend County, and unincorporated areas of Harris County. For all questions regarding fire permits or alarms, View Fire Marshal.
