How it Started:
In 2013 Jackson County Emergency Services No. 3 was formed through a majority vote of the property owners within its district. This was done to ensure that adequate funding was available for Emergency Services within the proposed service area. Taxpayers approved a 10 cent per one hundred dollar tax on their property to properly fund the service.
Jackson County Emergency Services District No. 3 (Edna Fire Department) is the largest Emergency Services District in Jackson County, spanning the area that runs from HWY 59 Lake Bridge to the Victoria County line and from Lavaca County Line on HWY 111 to the Meeting of the Lavaca and Navidad Rivers to the South.
