Your Schertz firefighters are always ready to respond! Our firefighters work 48 hour shifts and they spend a lot of time together. We encourage our firefighters to spend time together sharing a meal as a way to build camaraderie. The fire crews put their own money together into a food fund when making a trip to the grocery store to purchase food for the shift. They go as a group to the store so that then can quickly respond to any incident that comes in at a moments notice.
