Kemah Fire Department will provide professional quality fire and rescue services to its community. Through our dedication, training, and motivation to do our best we will operate efficiently, ethically and successfully, while supporting the people and communities we serve.


Having the right equipment to meet the fire, rescue and safety needs of the community is critical. The Kemah Fire Department strives to maintain a fleet of vehicles and equipment that allow maximum performance and results for the residents and businesses in the fire district.

Members will use their own judgment, collect their total resources, including their training and overall experience, bearing in mind all of the departments guidelines, and apply them collectively to the existing circumstances.
