NBFD New Hires Get Started
New Hires

New Braunfels recently hired 6 new personnel. They have attended 2 weeks of orientation in the FD Support Services Training Division, the first week concentrating on EMS and the second week more fire side orientation and water. Pictured left to right above is firefighters Josh Capps, Aaron Duval, Collin Montgomery, Elijah Plainer, Jack Dwyer, and Kenneth Pippin. FF Aaron Duval went to A-Shift, and the rest to B-Shift. Please make them feel welcome and mentor them in the ways of NBFD! See some more pics here.

NBFD Snowdrift?
CAFS Training

No, it's not snow.. it's foam! All NBFD crews recently took an abbreviated CAFS (Compressed Air Foam System) course taught by San Antonio Battalion Chief Russel Johnson. Chief Johnson is an ex-NBFD firefighter paramedic himself. Crews spent about 3 hours in the classroom then were able to experiment with different nozzles and foam proportions. When pumped and applied properly, the foam solution reduces heat and stops fire spread much faster than water. More photos are available here. Also available on our NBFD Training Mobile Site (
