The Beverly Hills Volunteer Fire Department provides fire and rescue services to the citizens and community of Beverly Hills.
Our mission is: TO PROTECT, TO SERVE AND TO CARE. This message relays to everyone what we are, what we do and who we are. Although small, we exhibit a fierce determination to protect life and property in Beverly Hills.

Equipment and Operations:
The department currently has two engines:
- 2001 pierce contender, 1500 gpm pumper with 1000 gallon tank of water.
- 1997 International Ferrara 1250 gpm pumper with 700 gallon tank of water.
Both engines have 4″ supply hose. 2 each 1 3/4″ crosslays at 200 feet. A 1 3/4″ trash line at 100 feet. 500 gpm TFT blistforce nozzles. Rescue tool and much more.
Our volunteer fire fighters meet bi-weekly to attend training sessions conducted by fellow volunteers or fire certified personnel. They participate in classroom and hands-on sessions involving SCBA’s, pump operations, rescue and fire suppression.
The fire department recognizes that training is a vital part of being a volunteer firefighter. We assist and encourage volunteers to attend additional training. They are given the opportunity to attend Texas A & M Fire School, which allows them to observe and participate in learning experiences that they then can apply to their own department.
