The Fulshear Fire Department was founded in 1963 after a fatal house fire in the community. Roy Helwig served as the first fire chief, elected by members of the department. At the time, firefighting equipment was limited to a cattle sprayer owned by a local rancher. The first single bay fire station was built in downtown Fulshear and the first fire truck was purchased from the City of Rosenberg with funds raised by oyster suppers. W.W. “Ug” Dozier was the second fire chief elected. This was the Fulshear Fire Department’s humble beginning.
Today, the department operates from four fire stations with five 1,500 GPM pumpers, two 3,500 gallon pumper tankers, one 2,000 GPM pumper tanker, one heavy rescue truck, one ladder tower, two 4×4 brush trucks, one command vehicle and two reserve pumpers with 10 volunteers and 50 part-time firefighters.
We proudly serve the Cities of Fulshear, Simonton, Weston Lakes and outlying areas of Katy and Richmond.
