Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department is a volunteer 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit fire suppression and first responder organization supported by our community. It is dedicated to providing the highest degree of emergency response service and support to the communities of Pecan Grove, Waterside Estates, Harvest Green and Plantation Place in Fort Bend County.
Our coverage area is approximately 20 miles southwest of Houston, in an unincorporated area of Fort Bend County between Richmond and Sugar Land. The district we serve and protect is about 9 square miles, with approximately 28,000 residents. The majority of our district is residential with several schools, apartment complexes, shopping centers and restaurants. Our services include primary fire, first responder medical coverage and HAZMAT, along with non-emergency services such as lock-outs and in-home fire inspections.
The Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1982 by a small group of residents who felt that the area deserved its own dedicated fire department. From that dream, the department has steadily grown into a highly trained organization that prides itself on service to the community. We began with one used fire truck and a handful of dedicated volunteers, and we now provide 24/7 coverage by TCFP and SFFMA certified firefighters, two pumpers, one pumper/tanker, one brush truck, multiple support vehicles, and a HAZMAT response trailer. The department operates out of two stations: Fire Station #1 at 727 Pitts Road and Fire Station #2 at 3700 Farmer Road.
A home’s proximity to a fire station affects insurance rates, not to mention how quickly firefighters can get there in an emergency. The Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department is proud to claim a less than five minute response time to 90 percent of its territory.
