With a paid staff of up to 24 firefighters, the Belton Fire Department is prepared to serve residents and visitors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The mission of the Belton Fire Department is to provide the highest level of fire protection and emergency medical services possible. The citizens of Belton deserve to be protected at all times regardless of the threat or danger. The Fire Department does this through prompt emergency response, advanced personnel training, fire prevention, public education, and code enforcement. The Belton Fire Department stands ready to protect and serve our community and others in our service area, as well as visitors.
The Belton Fire Department covers approximately 20 square miles for fire protection and emergency medical service. The Department has mutual aid agreements with many of the neighboring cities and area volunteer fire departments. In addition, we have disaster mutual aid agreements with Central Texas Council of Governments, which serves seven counties - Bell, Coryell, Lampasas, Milam, Hamilton, Mills and San Saba.
