Oak Hill Fire and EMS Academy

The Oak Hill Fire Department offers a cadet academy annually in order to train those interested in career firefighting to become State of Texas commissioned firefighters and emergency medical technicians. Oak Hill boasts consistently high pass rates for its academy, the only evening and weekend-run academy in the Austin area, which enables its attendeesĀ to continue to work while preparing for a new career. More information can be found by clicking HERE.

For information on how to donate to the Oak Hill Fire Foundation, which provides scholarships to cadets who otherwise wouldn’t have the means to attend the academy, click here.

Mackey Field

Mackey Field is completed and available to regional agencies for training. It was made possible by donations from the Oak Hill Fire Foundation and named for the far-seeing founder of the original Oak Hill Fire Department, Loy Mackey. Mackey Field is part of the Oak Hill Regional Fire/Rescue Training Center, and includes a five-story live fire capable drill tower. For more information about using this facility, please contact Battalion Chief Robert Hartigan at 512-288-5576 x 103.
