County fire departments prepare year-round for long, hot summer

The Texas summer features both wildfire season and the Fourth of July to go along with the hot and dry conditions. Kendall County firefighters are doing their job to stay both mentally and physically prepared to fight fires.

Kendall County is home to seven fire departments and over 140 volunteers, according to Texas A&M Forest Service Fire Connect data. Boerne Fire Department serves as a combination or part-paid department as they also have 22 paid members.

Sisterdale VFD Chief Brian Reilly said the summer is something that they're preparing for year-round. Improvement is not exclusive to a certain time of the year but is just part of the culture.
