About Us

Service commitment to our community...


Crims Chapel Volunteer Fire Department serves an area of 55 sq. miles between Henderson and Kilgore Texas. We provide fire, rescue, and medical first responder services and respond as a mutual aid to our neighboring departments of Elderville-Lakeport, Henderson, Kilgore, New London, and Church Hill. We are an all volunteer department that strives to respond 24/7, 365 days of the year to those in need. 

We look forward to serving the citizens of our community for many years to come, and thank you for viewing our page. We invite you to like and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on response calls, public safety announcements, and weather alerts.
