Fire Station #1 has served San Marcos from its current location since 1968, protecting residents from fires and other public safety concerns. The fire department also sponsors a Citizen and Junior Fire Academy, a home smoke detector program, visits schools, host tours of the station and participates in other events to educate the public about fire safety.
