Klein Volunteer Fire Department Station 7
Coming soon to 19302 T.C. Jester (T.C. Jester &
Spring Cypress) will be the new home of Klein
Volunteer Fire Department Station 7.
Construction of the new building began in October of
2012 and has an estimated completion date of Fall 2013.
Progress is being made quickly as the steel and walls
have gone up, the green roof has but put on and the
foundation for the front and back drive ways are being
prepped to have concrete poured.
The new facility provides the firefighters of station
7 with a larger facility for apparatus and personnel.
Included will be a large training room that will hold
classes not only for Klein firefighters but when
teaching with other surrounding departments to ensure
the best possible service is provided to the community.
Additionally added just behind the station is a 230 ft
radio communications tower. This tower transmits the
notifications for the firefighters to respond to
emergencies, radio traffic to other emergency units, and
to the dispatchers. Having the tower placed here in its
new location will provide for a more secure area that is
safer and more reliable.
Station 7 will be a (4) bay station housing a 2003
Pierce Enforcer Engine, an equipment truck that has the
capability to provide continued air supply, scene
lighting, materials used for mitigation of hazardous
materials response calls, and equipment used during
confined space rescue, and an F350 utility truck and a
high water and swift water rescue boat.
Response areas of station 7 include: The Chancel,
Spring Creek Oaks, Spring Creek Forest, Windrose,
Bridgestone West, Villages of Bridgestone, Senterra
Lakes, Terranova West, Terravista, Cypress Villas,
Cypress Trace, Farmette Meadows, and Spring Creek Court.

dedicated volunteers of the Klein VFD, please stop by
