The Training Division is responsible for continuing education and the maintenance and renewals of all fire and EMS certifications. At a minimum, every New Braunfels firefighter is certified as a firefighter through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and as an emergency medical technician through the Department of State Health Services.
The majority of New Braunfels firefighters are certified at levels well above the minimum requirements of the department and the State of Texas. Our division also provides our firefighters and regional public safety responders with courses and opportunities for professional development. You may contact us here.
