The Lytle Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1955. We are dedicated to the prevention and suppression of fires, as well as response to medical emergencies and other incidents in the City of Lytle, Texas (35 miles south of San Antonio), Atascosa, Bexar, and Medina Counties.
Our volunteer members serve the City of Lytle (pop. 3,000) as well as Atascosa, Bexar & Medina Counties (pop. approx. 25,000) with a service area of approx. 65 sq. miles averaging 1,200 runs annually.
The community profile is suburban residential with a rich historical background. The Lytle area is also rapidly growing with residential and we are prepared to handle the increase in volume and complexity of calls.
Lytle VFD is always looking for volunteers. The department is comprised of everyday citizens performing extraordinary service to the communities we service. Without volunteers Lytle VFD would not be able to respond to calls for service. Lytle VFD provides training to all its members which are accredited through the State Firemen's & Fire Marshals' Association of Texas. Lytle VFD also provides workers compensation insurance as well as life insurance on all its members. Lytle VFD holds its meeting every Monday night at Station 1 (15078 Main Street) at 7 pm.
