CE-Bar Fire department was formed in 1968 as an all volunteer department in response to the need for fire suppression in Western Travis County. It was named after the CE-Bar Ranch, which occupied much of the land that now forms the Lake Hills community. Donations and contributions were the sole source of funding until the formation of Travis County Rural Fire Prevention District #10 in 1985 when property tax assessment became the primary source of funds. In 1994, the constituents of the TCRFD#10 voted to convert to Travis County Emergency Services District #10 increasing the capability and services provided by CE-Bar Fire Department. Although we are funded by tax dollars, your contributions are still appreciated.
Ce-Bar Fire Department and Emergency Service District 10 are located at:
353 S. Commons Ford Rd.
Austin, TX 78733
