Waco Fire Department was founded in 1963. We have seen many changes through the years since our doors opened back then. We have gone from starting out with one wrecked truck in 1963 to now having a total of 7 fire apparatus and one boat. We are in our second building and making plans for our third to be located on South Main Street in Waco. Our roster is currently 28 members strong. We average around 300 calls per year. Waco Fire Department serves the 132 citizens inside the town limits of Waco, along with citizens within a 6 mile radius of the station which includes both Cleveland and Gaston Counties. We recently had an ISO inspection done of our station and have received a rating of Class 5 across the district. This has come down from a rating of Class 6/9 that we previously were obtaining. This has subsequently lowered the fire insurance premium that our community has to pay.
