Fire Stations and AFD Support for Canyon Creek
Frequently Asked Questions
- Q: How do I reach the Austin Fire Dept (AFD) in case of fire or medical emergency?
A: Dial “911”
- Q: What are the locations of the closest fire stations to CC for emergency response?
A: Station #39 located on River Place Blvd near the 3M complex just off 2222 is the closest followed by Station #38 located on Anderson Mill Rd, not too far from US Hwy 183.
- Q: What is the current average response time by AFD to an emergency call from Canyon Creek:
A: Current average response time is slightly over 12 minutes, depending on the exact home location. Traffic congestion on RM 620 often slows the response time. Note: The AFD goal is to arrive at the scene within 8 minutes after receipt of the call for 90% of all calls.
- Q: Is a new Austin fire station planned to better support CC in the future?
A: Yes! The Austin City Council voted on June 14, 2018 to build five new fire stations and Canyon Creek is the location for one of those five. This station will be located on a city property lot inside Canyon Creek on south Boulder Lane (or alternatively on RM 620) and is scheduled for completion in 2023 pending a successful city bond approval vote later this year.
