Dewayne Schuessler was the first Fire Chief for the VFD and Dewey Hollingsworth was the first EMS Coordinator. The station was added to over the years. In 2013, ESD9 was created, read more on the About ESD9 page. In 2020, Spicewood Fire Rescue replaced the Spicewood Volunteer Fire Department and in 2021 renovations were done to the Fire Station to add a fire suppression system, bunk rooms for paid overnight responders, and administration offices.
