Fire Protection Services
Cedar Park Fire Department currently provides fire service to the entire Cedar Park city limits as well as five (5) contract areas within the City of Cedar Park’s Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). Click here to see a map of the Fire Department’s service areas.
The two new additions to the Cedar Park Fire Department’s contract service areas include Williamson County ESD No. 11 and Williamson County ESD No. 12. These areas had previously received fire service from Cedar Park Fire Department but were not located within an entity that could contract with and compensate the City of Cedar Park for services rendered. However, during the November 2011 election, these “non-contracted” areas voted to create two Emergency Services Districts, Williamson County ESD No. 11 and ESD No. 12. Williamson County ESD No. 11 includes the Shenandoah neighborhood in south Cedar Park. Voters approved the creation of this ESD with a 178-25 vote. Williamson County ESD No. 12 includes Breakaway, Caballo Ranch, Whippoorwill, Lakewood Country Estates, The Place, Sam Bass and other neighborhoods east of US 183. Voters approved the creation of ESD No. 12 with a 179-35 vote.
Residents in the northwest corner of the City of Cedar Park’s ETJ, which include the North Rim, Cross Creek and Indian Springs neighborhoods, chose to join Travis County ESD No. 1 and are now served by the North Lake Travis Fire Department.
