History

Established in 1942 for the Little York community, The Little York Vol. Fire Dept was established by a group of volunteers who wished to protect their community. The original station was located near the intersection of what is now Airline and Little York. In the 70s Little York Fire Department absorbed the Rushwood Fire Department expanding our response area to the FM 1960 corridor. With the growth of other fire departments along with the annexation of the city of houston, LYFDs territory has downsized to what it is now. The Little York Volunteer Fire Department is responsible for protecting the lives and properties of people within Emergency Service District #17. ESD#17 is a taxing district that is ran by elected officials and its sole purpose is to provide funding for fire protection within the territory (LYVFDs response area). The department operates through three stations and its coverage area spans from Canino Rd to Richey Rd from Veterans Memorial to the Hardy Toll Road. In additionm LYVFD responds to calls outside of our immediate area due to mutual aid agreements with neighboring fire districts.The Little York Volunteer Fire Department maintains a fleet of 2 First Out Rescue Pumpers,1 Ladder truck(quint), 1 Tanker Truck, 2 Reserve Trucks, 1 Booster truck, 4 command vehicles, a Rescue boat, Rehab and 1 utility truck.  The Little York Volunteer Fire Department is a combination paid/volunteer department which means we offer both paid and volunteer membership opportunities and are always accepting applications for volunteers. LYVFD responds to emergency situations and provides a variety of medical and rescue services when the time arises. The Little York Volunteer Fire Department offers patch trading options along with a variety of fire prevention and safety information and courses. At Little York Volunteer Fire Department, we perform our jobs to the highest standards "So That Others May Live".
