The Judson Fire Department provides Fire Protection, Rescue and First Responder services outside the City of Longview, TX. The district covers approximately 32 square miles of urban rural interface. We consist of a combination department with part time staffing supplemented with volunteers out of 1 fire station. The Department averages around 650 calls annually.
The Beginning (Department)
The Fire Department was created in 2004 to provide Emergency Services to the northern portion of Gregg County. The organization was initiated by a local family that felt the need to have a dedicated fire protection department in the area of Judson. With generous donations, grants, and training the department has grown to what it is today. In 2019, Gregg County Voters approved switching from an all donation funded organization to ESD (Tax Funded). Since its creation, we have vastly increased our services.
Station 1 is located at 436 Skinner Lane in Longview Texas. We provide the county with 1 Engine, Tanker, Two Brush Trucks and 1 Command/Chief Officer Car
