About Us

As Western Comal County’s 9-1-1 emergency services provider, Bulverde Spring Branch Emergency Services covers 216 square miles of the Texas Hill Country. Our service district spans the cities of Bulverde and Spring Branch, in addition to the extensive unincorporated areas of Comal County. We also have the full responsibility of responding to calls at Guadalupe River State Park and on the 22.5 miles of the Guadalupe River. 


BSBES stands as a distinguished career department operating four fully manned stations 24/7 and one primary EMS, along with the strategic activation of a sixth station during significant weather events or other non-routine times. Our crews are dual-trained as firefighters and, at a minimum, EMT-Basic. This dual proficiency allows seamless transitions between firefighting and medical duties, ensuring efficient staff utilization and swift assessment of both fire-related hazards and medical emergencies at any given scene.


Bulverde Spring Branch Emergency Services is committed to enhancing our response capabilities through advanced technical training, including swift water, high angle, wildland, rescue dive team, caves and confined spaces, structural collapse, and tactical medic. Our personnel also train in a bio-skills anatomy lab, enabling us to implement progressive protocols, resulting in an exceptionally high procedural success rate. BSBES also maintains a Community Health Program (CHP) and contracts a dedicated coordinator for this innovative approach to inclusive healthcare. 


We prioritize community well-being with a comprehensive Community Health Program, offering no-cost educational classes such as Stop the Bleed and Hands-Only CPR. These initiatives empower our citizens with lifesaving skills, fostering a safer environment for everyone. Click this text for more information or to register for a class.
