Bracken Vfd Year To Date Calls






Thank you for saving my grandma’s life. I appreciate all that you do! Thanks and God bless


Thank you all for being there for us after our car accident at the 2252/3009 intersection on January 2, 2016. You all were super.

Cotten/Gaitz Family

Can’t thank you enough for getting to my mom as fast as you did. You saved my “rock.” Can’t imagine my life without her. You are appreciated beyond measure.

Kristi S.

My husband had experienced a blood sugar drop and was greatly distressed. You folks knew exactly what to do and teaming with the Garden Ridge Police and Schertz EMS, you were able to bring Svede back to himself.


Stopped in today for an impromptu visit. Lt. Jordan and the C-shift crew were outstanding! Jordan REALLY went above and beyond in showing my little boy all the tools of the trade. THANK YOU!
