The Marble Falls Fire Department was established in 1936 and served 123 square miles. The first truck ever purchased was in 1973. This became the first Brush Truck and it had to be push started. The original fire station was located in the 300 block of Main Street until 1998 when the station relocated to its current location. In 1998 the City began to hire full-time firefighters starting with Russell Daniell and then Coy Guenter. In 2002, the City formed Marble Falls Fire Rescue to service the city limits. This left the Volunteer Department as a separate entity to provide mutual aid to area cities and communities whenever necessary.
Currently, Marble Falls Fire Rescue operates out of one station located at 700 Avenue N. The station is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The administrative offices operate Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and observe all city holidays. And if you are wondering Russell and Coy are still active members of the department.
