Helipad is nearly
We are very excited to announce that the helipad for an emergency medical evacuation of area residents to Shannon Hospital via their AirMed1 helicopter service is nearly complete.
We are grateful to Calvin and Cora McGowen, without their generous support this project would still be a dream. We would also like to thank Ingram Concrete for their contribution to the project and to Garza Construction for their guidance and contributions.
We have been serving our Community since 2001. Our Fire Department proudly protects the citizens of our community with the intent to save lives and property, serve the community, assist where needed, and to provide the best fire protection possible. The Fort McKavett Fire District is a farming/ranching community located 70 miles south-south east of San Angelo, Texas. Our community is located right on the county lines of four different ounties: Menard, Sutton, Kimble, and Schleicher. We provide first response for a 300 square mile area and a secondary response to the four adjacent fire districts of approximately 3,000 square miles. To see a larger map click here. As a first responder we strive to be the first to arrive on the scene and begin fighting a fire, assist with water rescues, provide aid at accidents, and traffic control as needed. One of the first things we do is make an assessment of the situation and if necessary call for assistance from other departments.
