Early History

As is the City of Navasota, the Navasota Fire Department is rich in history and tradition. The Fire Department was formed sometime in 1886 by a group of local businessmen seeing the need for an organized department to handle the City's fires and emergencies. They called themselves the Navasota Fire Boys with a Hook and Ladder Company and Hose Company.

Recent History

They eventually ventured out to serve other areas including all of Grimes County and parts of Washington and Brazos Counties. This continued until the 1960s and 1970s until other towns started their own departments. The Navasota Fire Department still serves the citizens of the City of Navasota and approximately 170 square miles of Grimes County.
