- Wimberley Volunteer Fire Department is made up of thirty one volunteers, five full time, and one part time personnel that cover 135 square miles of the south western portion of Hays County. We have three engines, four brush trucks, two water tenders, one heavy rescue, and one compressed air foam system truck.
In the early part of 2011, the Insurance Services Office did a review of us and recommended to the state that the insurance rate for this area be lowered to a 5 in a water district and an 8b outside of a water district.
