Cypress Creek Fire Department
Cypress Creek Fire Department is the operating name for Harris County Emergency Services District 13, a political division of the State of Texas. CCFD is a combination fire department, which means that we staff both full-time and volunteer personnel around the clock. Our department is made up of about 150 firefighters who serve the northwest area of Harris County just outside of Houston, TX.
Cypress Creek Fire Department provides fire suppression & rescue first response services to our 33 square mile district and to the greater FM1960 area in conjunction with our automatic aid departments.
