Local leaders have been talking together, along with other local and state agencies, for weeks about the COVID-19 situation. This morning, a group of 40 representatives from the Kendall County, City of Boerne, the City of Fair Oaks Ranch, Boerne ISD, emergency management and law enforcement officials, health care and first responders, the Boerne Chamber, Boerne Kendall County EDC, H-E-B and Walmart came together at Boerne’s City Hall to discuss the most recent information related to COVID-19. This group is unified on strategies to prevent the spread of the virus in our community and continues to actively monitor all area, state, and federal actions related to this emerging community health threat. With the rapidly changing information regarding this virus, going forward, representatives from these groups will coordinate daily and release updated information that impacts area residents. You will see messages coming through every avenue that can be used: websites, Facebook, emails, etc.

A couple of key messages we want everyone in our community to know:

• There is no reason to panic about the current situation.
• All of us take this COVID-19 threat very seriously and we implore people to remain calm.
• We will remain vigilant and engaged with health officials daily until this situation passes.
• We are committed to frequent, consistent and proactive communication to our community members.
• At the moment we are not in an emergency situation status.
• We endorse the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines as the key source of information on how to handle COVID-19.
• We all are operating on a daily basis as we have, with some modifications to our procedures.
• None of us know exactly what the next few weeks will hold, but we are monitoring and responding to the hourly changes as quickly as possible.
• There will be continuous communications about our plans to the entire community.

This situation has, without a doubt, changed our lives in the short run. We all believe that staying calm and responding in a cohesive fashion as a strong community, we can support each other through this to a successful conclusion.

Early this morning two people incurred life threatening injuries when their car struck a tree off of FM1621. This was not how anyone wants their Valentine’s Day to end. Firefighters from Comfort, Waring, and Boerne had to extricate the driver. The rescue also involved KCEMS medics (two ambulance crews) as well as KCSO deputies, a TXDPS trooper, and a helicopter crew from Air Methods. A family member has contacted us and says the driver was not drinking.

Last week, Commissioners Court recognized Paramedic Phillip Nuncio for his 20 Years of dedicated service to the citizens and visitors of Kendall County. Phillip’s emergency medicine experience is vast. He is a Registered Nurse, Flight Paramedic, Critical Care Paramedic, and has served in other disciplines with regional Medical Helicopter Services and as a RN working in both Emergency Departments and Intensive Care Units. The very best part of Phillip is that he is always willing to pass on his knowledge, training, and experiences with anyone who asks. Phillip sets the bar high for himself and is always pushing his colleagues to be the best they can be. Please join all of us at Kendall County EMS in congratulating Phillip on his 20th Anniversary!

Kendall County doing their part!!
To further add to my review your mission statement clearly wasn't in practice by the EMS workers responding to my emergency. Please have a supervisor or higher up contact me so I may file a form al complaint against the two EMS workers.
Thank You From Boerne Dispatch For The Food Tonight...Shelly Jennings Jennifer Alexander and Mama Mel...
Our hearts and prayers go out to this family in their time of grief.
Last week Larry and I went to the Boerne Kendall County EMS location to hopefully meet the gentlemen that answered the call when I had my fall and subsequently transported me to University Hospital in San Antonio. As luck would have it, they weren’t there. But as God would have it, we were getting gas in Comfort yesterday and an ambulance was parked next to us. Jeffery Ziegler, EMT was driving and is one of the EMTs that treated me at the scene! It was wonderful to meet him and Dan Davis EMT and personally thank him for his kind and compassionate care! I haven’t been able to thank Brett Humphus, EMT or Deputy Klearner but I will soon. Deputy Klearner was first on the scene and supported my back until the EMTs arrived. A huge THANK YOU to these gentlemen and the Kendall County EMS. They were all awesome, kind, and so compassionate!
Congrats Matt Kellogg on you 10 year award!!! Hope you get back to work soon!
I was involved in a bad accident on Friday 5/12/17 around 6:20 am between Comfort & Boerne near Waring/Welfare. I am looking here for help finding the people that stopped to help me. I was conscious the whole time but everything was so crazy I never got the chance to thank those that stopped to help. There was one man in particular that got down on the ground & let me lean on him while EMS worked on me and I would love to find him and thank him for what he did. I have reached out to the sheriff's office but they don't have his info. I also know there was a man from the Kendall county jail, an off duty sheriff, a woman that gathered all of my belongings off the side of the road and many others. I would love to thank all of you that stopped to help it means more than you know. If you know someone that stopped to help me please let them know. Thanks in advance!!
Thanks for my award from the Veterns Of Foreign Wars. I appreciate the recognition!
Matt Kellogg receiving his 5 year award!! Congrats Matt!!
Ate lunch with a great group!
Just in case no one has told you lately, all of you at our EMS rock!!!! Thank you for all you do!
