The Highlands Fire Department participates in Mutual aid agreements with the surrounding communities which enable consistent coverage for Highlands and our neighboring cities. In a Mutual aid agreement our fire and EMS unit may respond to assist any of several EMS and fire services including but not limited to Baytown, Crosby and Channelview; the same can be said about the fire and EMS units of those departments as they will assist Highlands with its emergency needs when our units are unavailable or already responding to an incident.
