The Williamson County Emergency Services District Number 4 received a $25,000 grant through the Community Development Partnership Program of the Lower Colorado River Authority.
With the help of the Community Relations department at the Pedernales Electric Cooperative, the district was able to procure funds that, when added with applicant contributions, allows for the purchase of 20 sets of bunker gear for the Liberty Hill Fire Department. The gear will allow all members of the department, both paid and volunteer, to comply with state and federal guidelines involving personal protective equipment. The added level of safety ensures firefighter security when protecting life and property of the citizens of Williamson County and surrounding areas.
STRENGTH. COMPASSION. EXPERIENCE. TRUST.
During times of crisis, Liberty Hill area residents know they can count on the Fire Department to take care of them.
From fighting fires, coordinating daring rescues in swift water, and providing on-scene emergency trauma care, the Liberty Hill Fire Department keeps close watch over our community. Highly trained to handle any emergency, firefighters and emergency medical technicians regularly go into harm's way to save lives and protect property.
But helping neighbors during times of crisis is only part of their job. Protecting the public's safety through education and prevention are equally important. That's why Fire Department staff frequently visit classrooms throughout the school district to teach children how to safely escape a fire, and how to call for help. Fire officials also enforce Fire Codes to be sure that all public buildings are properly constructed for safety.
No one cares more for the safety of Liberty Hill than the brave men and women of our Fire Department. With 10 employees and 15 volunteers, the department serves an estimated 20,000 residents in the Liberty Hill area -- a district that spans 136 square miles. In 2008, LHFD responded to more than 1,500 calls for service -- a statistic that is expected to climb dramatically as the region continues to grow in population and commuter traffic.
