The Horizon City Fire Department is currently operating out of a single station located at 14151 Nunda Dr. in central Horizon City. With the explosion of growth in Horizon City and the surrounding area, it will soon become necessary to build satellite stations in the surrounding 150+ square miles of territory for which we are responsible. We are able to do this with an entirely volunteer department. The men and women who volunteer countless hours for the safety of the people and property in the Horizon City area deserve the gratitude of the residents, If you see them, take some time thank them.
