Deciding the Future Direction of the Bergheim VFD

The Bergheim VFD is working to keep up with the growth in eastern Kendall County. As a next step, we are proposing that an Emergency Services District (ESD) be established for this service area. ESD’s, common in Texas, provide a sustainable funding source for an area. An ESD will address critical needs required to better serve our expanding community. Currently, we are asking for your help by signing a petition. This petition asks the Kendall County Commissioners to add the ESD on the November 2021 ballot for a public vote. At that election, the community will decide whether or not to establish an ESD. Volunteers are collecting signatures. Contact Chief Adam Hawkins of Bergheim VFD at 210-885-2406 if you would like to sign the petition and have not been approached.

Donate to Support New Engine 33 !

The “Power Up” Engine 33 virtual fundraising campaign continues from last year. Due to the challenges this year has brought, there will be no brick & mortar event for 2020. See MORE INFO for more information and the donation form.
