Kendall County

All public safety in Kendall County uses the LCRA P25 System for primary communications.

 Law Enforcement

All law enforcement in the county is dispatched on LCRA TG 7001 (Kendall Law Primary). These agencies all use TG 7002 (Kendall Law Info) as their TLETS/NCIC channel and as a backup dispatch channel when Primary is closed for a hot incident.

Agency Unit Numbers
Kendall SO 1101-1199
Kendall Constables 261-267
Boerne PD 301-366
Fair Oaks Ranch PD 8101-8140
Texas DPS 6C101-6C109
Kendall Animal Control 1341-1343

In addition, each agency has a few talkgroups listed on the LCRA Page that are used as their personal talk channels. Encryption is generally not seen in use except for on the talkgroups labeled TAC1 and TAC2 which are fully encrypted but rarely seen in use.

 Fire and EMS

All fire departments and Kendall County EMS are dispatched on TG 7028 (Kendall Fire Paging) which is permanently patched to VHF 155.400 (125 DPL). After being paged, all response is handled on TG 7031 (Kendall Fire Primary). If an incident requires a dedicated operations channel, dispatch will assign an ops channel (TGs 7003-7007, OP1-OP5). These talkgroups are common to all local agencies including medivac and road and bridge for major incidents. Each department also has a pair of private talkgroups that are primarily used for chit chat and training exercises. Each department is listed below.

Bergheim VFD is the newest department in the county, operational in June 2009. It covers southeast Kendall County and some of the priciest real estate in the county in Cordillera Ranch and it's exclusive golf club, as well as Mark T. Voss Middle School. As of early 2022, Bergheim is looking to form Kendall County's first Emergency Services District to better serve the area.

Boerne Fire Department formed in 1903 and was all volunteer for most of it's existence until growth demanded a full time staff to serve the community which is now over 20,000 in the city limits alone. Boerne FD covers south central and south west Kendall County with fire and first responder service.
