Harris County Emergency Services District #9 (HCESD #9) is a political subdivision of the State of Texas serving the Cy Fair area as a taxing district to support emergency services, such as fire suppression and ambulance services (EMS). Established in 1984, the District is governed by a board of five commissioners who are elected for 4 year terms. They must be residents or property owners in the District. They are supported by a Managing Director and their support staff.
HCESD #9 is funded by property taxes, which are based on appraisals of real and personal property such as single-family residential, multi-family residential , commercial and raw land, as well as Sales Tax .The District contracted with a service provider to fund Fire and EMS services to the community.
Each month a Board Meeting is scheduled to conduct the business of the District by the Commissioners. The agenda of the meeting is posted and the items are addressed in the meeting. These meetings are held at the business office at 9630 Telge Road, Houston, TX 77095.
In 2003, HCESD #9, in partnership with Lone Star College-Cy Fair and the CFVFD, built a state of the art education facility that trains volunteers as well as provides Fire Science and EMS programs, accredited by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and Texas Department of Health.
