Hays County is served by 9 Emergency Services Districts (ESDs) that provide valuable emergency services such as fire and EMS to residents of Hays County. ESDs are political subdivisions established by local voters for the purpose of raising money through ad valorem taxes on all real property located within the district. Some ESDs also use sales taxes to help fund their district.
Below is a map of the ESD boundaries in Hays County.
Under state law, ESDs must file annual reports with the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Office of Rural Affairs. For more information about the filing requirements and operating requirements for ESDs please visit: Emergency Service Districts
Additional information about ESDs is available from the Texas Association of Fire and Emergency Districts (SAFE-D) at www.safe-d.org.
