What is an ESD?

An Emergency Services District (ESD) is a local government agency created by a vote of the public to provide fire protection in specific areas in Medina County. The governing statute for an ESD is Chapter 775 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. An ESD collects taxes based on appraisals of real and personal property, and usually contracts with a service provider, e.g. Devine Volunteer Fire Department. There are two types of ESDs: one is for fire protection and the other is for emergency medical services (EMS).

 

An ESD is governed by a board of commissioners who are elected to four-year staggered terms by the residents in the district. All candidates must file an application with an ESD board secretary or other officer appointed to carry out election duties. All members must be 18 years old and a resident of the district.
