Protecting lives and property from fire
ESD #5 Info
Our vision: We are dedicated and committed to being a progressive and attentive community-focused Fire and Rescue service. We work, as a team, to promote health and safety through prevention to those entrusted in our care.
Travis County ESD #5 is the Fire Department which serves the areas just south of the City of Austin to the Travis County boundary line. This includes subdivisions such as Bear Creek, Onion Creek Meadows, the City of San Leanna, and Shady Hollow. Our coverage area includes about 12 square miles and a population of around 17,000.
ESD #5 has entered into an Auto Aid agreement with the Austin Fire Department and other county fire departments in the Auto Aid Coalition.
To our residents, this means no matter what jurisdiction the emergency happens in, the closest unit will respond! This newer type of response model will yield faster responses and a more unified response when it comes to emergencies in the area.
