As Converse has grown, so has its Fire Department. The Converse Fire Department has grown from an all volunteer staff to a staff of 26 paid firefighters who are certified as both firefighters and emergency medical technicians. The department also employs three administrative personnel. Together, the staff maintain equipment, complete fire and health inspections, encourage public relations / fire prevention, and make fire and EMS calls.

Apparatus
Converse is one of the busiest departments in Bexar County and responds to more than 2,000 calls for fire and EMS services a year. The department runs:
  • One aerial truck
  • One command vehicle
  • One communications trailer
  • One hazardous materials trailer
  • One rescue truck with a cascade unit and the jaws of life
  • Two brush trucks
  • Three Class A pumpers
  • Three medical intensive care unit ambulances

Latest Addition
In early 2004, the Converse Fire Department took delivery of a 2003 Pierce aerial truck. Truck seven has a 100-foot platform that can carry six people in a fully enclosed cab. As the Fire Department's newest fleet addition, it will enable Converse to provide better capabilities to its citizens and those of surrounding areas at multi-story structure fires and rescues.
