We love you, Tierra Linda Ranch Fire Department! Even though you serve over 82 square miles, we know that you’re looking out for us in Tierra Linda Ranch.
Located at 406 Oak Alley in Kerrville, the Tierra Linda Ranch fire department is a 100% volunteer organization funded completely by Gillespie County.
There are no administrative costs and all funds are used exclusively for providing emergency services to Tierra Linda Ranch and surrounding regions. Funds are also collected from voluntary contributions from customers and nearby businesses. This fire department covers over 82 mi.² covering parts of Southwest Gillespie County and Kerr County along Highway 783.
The station itself is located on leased land in Tierra Linda Ranch. Even though the department is an independent facility, the fire district extends considerably be on the ranch boundaries and is over four times the land area that makes up the ranch.
Volunteers are responsible to assist in any type of emergency medical situation and are trained in administering first aid, CPR, AED and can prepare landing zones for medical lifts if need be. Volunteers also have participated in public service activities as well as called upon for various motor vehicle accidents and fire control in the area. Volunteers have responded to calls in all adjacent departments and have been dispatched as far away as Medina and Mason although they primarily stay within their boundaries if they can.
The fire department also participates with Gillespie County in an “automatic aid concept”, which could include being dispatched to portions of Harper and Fredericksburg fire districts should the need arise.
The fire department also has a great website that talks about boundaries, personnel, frequently asked questions and equipment at the fire station. Personally speaking, this is one of the best fire districts in the area. Not only are they right on-site, but their dedication and training are impeccable.
