Fire Stations and Police Station Support for Canyon Creek

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Q: How do I reach the Austin Fire Dept (AFD) in case of fire or medical emergency?
    A: Dial “911”

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Q: Is a new Austin fire station planned to better support CC in the future?
    A: The good news is Yes to both! The Austin City Council voted in June 2018 to build five new fire stations and the Canyon Creek area is the location for one of those five. In addition, a new police station will also be built just outside CC. Both the new police station and the new fire station will be combined on a common property (recently purchased by APD) and built at 9804 RM 620 directly across the street from the Griffis Canyon Creek Apartments. This combined APD/AFD station will be  located between the two Boulder Lane entrances to Canyon Creek on RM 620 and is scheduled for completion in 2023.
