Meet Our Team
ESD1 is overseen by five emergency service district commissioners that are appointed by the Hays County Commissioners Court and are residents of the ESD1. Emergency service district commissions for ESD1 serve two-year terms as provided under section 775.034 of the Texas Health and Safety Code. All ESD1 commissioners are volunteers, meaning they receive no compensation for their work.
Commissioners of the NHCESD1 also serve as officers for the District and as committee members. ESD commissioners receive training in the operation of political subdivisions, including training by the State Attorney General’s Office on the Open Meetings Act and the Open Records Act. Additionally, commissioners receive training from the Texas State Association of Fire and Emergency Districts (“SAFE-D”) or other approved training.
