About Us

The Weston Volunteer Fire Department was started in 1968 by then Chief Kenneth Cowan and 28 volunteers with a $1000 purchase of a used Fire Truck from Celina Fire Department. The Department has since become a tax-exempt Nonprofit 501(c) (3). The Department relies on private donations along with a stipend from Collin County for providing fire protection and rescue services to the unincorporated areas within the fire protection district of the Department to fund our annual operating expenses. Please see the Donations tab to see how you can help.

Our coverage area includes approximately 55 square miles (35,000 square acres) centered around the City of Weston which is in North Central Collin County between the communities of Anna and Celina.

Last year Weston Fire and Rescue responded to 246 calls for service. This is an increase of 124% from 2019 and 67% from 2020. With our continued projected growth within the unincorporated area of Collin County in which we provide services and the City of Weston we are expecting to see an increase for calls for service within the district. Our projected call volume for our district will most likely exceed 380 calls pending the current trends and population growth within the geographical area as well as the community in which we serve.

The Weston VFD is an ALL VOLUNTEER staff. These men & women spend many hours away from family for training and responding to calls. Without them we would not be the first class Fire & Rescue service that the community has come depend on.

We are actively seeking new volunteers and you are encouraged to join our department. You can make a big difference in your life and the lives of others by volunteering your time.

We are on call 24/7 -365 and respond to all structure, grass and wild-land fires, vehicle collisions, emergency medical needs, and other emergencies, whether natural or man made.
