The City of Southside Place Police and Fire Departments surpassed their goal of collection over 150 new toys for the Children's Assessment Center by delivering over 500 toys to the center on December 10. The departments have been participating in the toy drive since 2015 when former Lt. Al Baker became involved. Since his passing earlier this year, his memory was indeed honored by the men and women of the Southside Place Police and Fire Departments, the citizens of Southside Place and all other who contributed their time and gifts into making this the most successful toy drive yet.
The City of Southside Place, Texas Volunteer Fire Department's main goal is to assure that the citizens of Southside Place receive prompt, efficient and effective volunteer fire service. The city's current ISO rating is 1 with 34 active volunteers.

Description of Responsibilities
The Southside Place Volunteer Fire Department provides direction by establishing policy, delegating authority, and organizing and controlling fire fighting activities. The department also appraises the city administration of current issues within the fire service and submits ordinances for consideration to provide a more safe community.
The Southside Place Fire Department was established in 1935. The fire department meets every Monday night at 7:30 at the fire station. Dinner meetings are held approximately every six weeks. Residents are encouraged to attend meetings and are welcome to join the department. No prior experience is required. All equipment and training is provided by the city. Your level of involvement is completely up to you. If you do not feel comfortable with the prospect of fighting fires, there is still plenty to do. Volunteering with the Fire Department is not only a very honorable way to serve the community, it is also a lot of fun.
