About ESD #2

    Hill County Emergency Services District #2 is a political subdivision of the State of Texas.  Voters in Hill County approved the formation of Hill County ESD#2 for the purpose of providing emergency medical service to residents of the  District.  Hill County ESD#2 covers all residents of the county who reside outside the city limits and ETJs of the cities of Hillsboro and Whitney.


    Hill County ESD#2 is funded through a property tax of $.048572 per $100 valuation, and a sales tax  that ranges from 1/2 cent - 1 cent depending on location.


    Hill County ESD#2 contracts with CareFlite to provide both ground and air emergency medical service.

There are currently four ground ambulances stationed in the county which are available 24/7.  They are stationed  at Whitney, Itasca, Hillsboro and Hubbard.  Another ambulance is on call during daylight hours and is on station at Covington.  In addition to the ground units, CareFlite maintains a rotary wing air ambulance on station at our Whitney base.
