As we reflect on a great year for the Baytown Fire Department we are looking forward to even more improvements in our service to the greatest city in the country! The fire department responded to over 12,658 calls for service, ranging mostly from emergency medical calls to service and rescue calls of all types. We are proud to have seen a drop in our structure fire calls and are continuing to promote messages related to fire prevention and citizen safety through our Fire Marshals’ Office and public education efforts. Our best communicators are still the young children of this city; we are able to work with and teach a variety of fire safety skills that they in turn take home and share with their family members.
Safety continues to be one of our top priorities and in 2017, the fire department strives to be a safe place to work. By engaging the Community this coming year we hope to work closer with citizens in ways that will help them prepare and react to situations and events that occur so that injuries and illnesses can be prevented, which will only result in an even safer Baytown.
Thank you for your trust and support in all that we do. Our service will always be dedicated to improving the quality of life throughout the city and our efforts in partnering with every aspect of the community will help us achieve that goal.
