Important Notification. Fire Department Phone Number Changes

Effective May 1, 2013.   The City of Kingsville Fire Department may be reached by phone at two different numbers.

 

  • 9-1-1: For emergency calls, persons should dial 9-1-1.  A law enforcement emergency dispatcher will direct your call to the Fire Department.
  •  (361) 592-6445For all non-emergency requests or questions between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, persons should call the Fire Administration number at (361) 592-6445.

If you have a long distance monitored fire alarm or medical alarm system, in case of emergency your alarm company should call the Police Dispatch Center at (361) 592-4311.

Beginning May 1st, most old Fire Department phone numbers will be deactivated and will have a recording that refers callers to the numbers above.

In cases where a Fire Department representative is unable to answer an emergency phone call, the caller will be automatically directed back to the law enforcement dispatcher for further assistance.

These changes are being made to clear emergency phone lines of non-emergency calls in order to provide faster emergency service.

Thank you for your cooperation.
