Harleton Fire Department 
  Harrison County Emergency Service District No. 8

Central Station, located in the Heart of Harleton, is where all the magic begins! Beginning in the early 1950’s, Central started out as a garage to house the first trucks. Years later, after becoming ESD #8 a new and Top of the Line Fire House and Training Facility was constructed. Now, housing Brush-truck #5245, Engine #5214, Tender #5231, is also fitted with a Full Kitchen, Training Classroom, Storage Facility and Offices.

Central houses Our “First Out” Engine 5214, one of our four brush-trucks 5245, and one of our three Tenders, 5231. It is also the centralized location for communications and is equipped with three VHF radios and One UHF radio. This Communication Center has a Radio Tower with an 8’ antenna making the tower a total of 48’ tall. Central Station, is in a centralized location so that in the event of a local or nationwide emergency, Harleton can maintain a “Command Center” for such event.
