The response district contains commercial, educational, industrial, marine, multi-family, and one-family occupancies. The district also contains sections of Interstate 10, the Sam Houston Toll Road, and several railroads.

The Department has an Insurance Service Office - Public Protection Classification (PPC) of an ISO Class 1, resulting in lower fire insurance costs to property owners. 

An older 3.2 square mile part of the Department's response district contains the third most densely populated area within Harris County (6,637 persons per square mile - 2010 Census). 

The Department is operated by Harris County Emergency Services District 12.
