The Tomball Fire Department operates three divisions with distinctly separate focuses but with one overriding purpose: to provide for the safety of the Tomball Community. The Fire and Rescue Division performs the traditional functions of suppressing fires and extricating victims from motor vehicle accidents. The Fire Marshal's office completes plan reviews, annual inspections of commercial buildings, fire investigations, investigates environmental crimes and is responsible for public education programs. The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the planning of the city's response to and recovery from large-scale natural or man-made disasters.
