In 1975, the residents of the Westlake and surrounding communities started the Westlake Fire Department with fewer than twenty members, a van, and four-hundred feet of assorted hose. Today, the Westlake Volunteer Fire Department operates a centralized station that was completed in 2014, servicing a population of 85,000 in the Houston suburb of Katy, TX as a combination department with 150 dedicated full time, part time and volunteer professionals.
