Crims Chapel VFD was established in 1989 as an effort to increase fire protection to the
citizens of rural northern Rusk County. Originally located at the intersection of CR 254
and SH 322, the station has since been moved to a more central location at 3717 CR
241E.

Crims Chapel VFD is a 13 member, all volunteer fire department, serving a rural
populated area of approximately 2500 people with one station.  CCVFD began as strictly
fire suppression, but has since upgraded services to include medical first response and
rescue capabilities, including vehicle extrication (JAWS).
