Fire Station #1 Wins Main Street’s “Partner of the Month” Award

Partner of the Month - FD May 2019

The distinction, formerly “Business of the Month,” is a new label that has been expanded to encompass both hardworking small businesses and non-profit or public service organizations

Fire Station #1 has served San Marcos from its current location since 1968, protecting residents from fires and other public safety concerns. The fire department also sponsors a Citizen and Junior Fire Academy, a home smoke detector program, visits schools, host tours of the station and participates in other events to educate the public about fire safety.

Fire Station 1 is located on 114 E. Hutchison St, less than 1000 feet from the historic Downtown Square. Emergency service hours are 24/7, 365 days a year. Their efforts are supported through a variety of engines and vehicles including: a 2013 Spartan Class A Pumper (Engine 1), a 2016 Spartan Metro (Engine 2), a Battalion Chief Command Vehicle and a rescue boat.
