It is the mission of the Taylor Fire Department to prevent the loss of life and to control or reduce the loss of property by being committed to providing the highest level of service possible. We will accomplish this mission through fire suppression, Advanced Life Support rescue, code enforcement, public fire education, fire investigating and professional training. It is our priority to provide the best fire service to all Taylor citizens and visitors.
About the Current Department:
The primary responsibility of the Taylor Fire Department is to respond to and mitigate emergencies by limiting the effects of fire, natural disaster, medical and hazardous material incidents. This is accomplished through the use of emergency preparedness plans, fire prevention and code enforcement, public education, hazardous materials response teams, and other specialized programs.
The department's primary effort is to provide effective fire suppression, ALS level emergency medical service, and hazard mitigation efforts within four minutes to any emergency scene in our City. The unifying goal is to help people through education and cooperation.
The department maintains three fire stations with two fire engines, one ladder truck and one shift commander vehicle. The Fire Department consists of 36 fire suppression positions and three administrative positions.

CodeRED Emergency Alert System
The City of Taylor has implemented the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service. The CodeRED system will serve as the backbone of the City of Taylor’s emergency planning and communications outreach to both citizens and Taylor personnel by using the system capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property. CodeRED, among other notification systems available, was selected for its unrivaled reliability and accuracy, as well as the system’s global use.
Taylor has been provided an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, however all residents living within City limits are encouraged to visit www.cityoftaylor.com and click on the CodeRED logo to enroll additional contact information including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses. No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database.
To help grow Taylor's database with the most reliable information, CodeRED provides a secure, customized Community Notification Enrollment (CNE) page that allows residents and businesses to add or update their contact information to ensure they will be included when a message is sent – unlisted numbers, mobile numbers, TDD/TTY requirements can all be entered.
