NBFD to Host Series of Community Events

The City of New Braunfels Fire Department is inviting the public to join them at a series of upcoming community events designed to give residents more up-close access and interaction with the Fire Department and its employees.

“We are quite literally opening the doors of our fire houses during these upcoming events, and we hope the residents of New Braunfels will take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about our department, our employees, and the services we provide,” said New Braunfels Fire Chief Patrick O’Connell.

Here are the details of the upcoming community events:
