I grew up in Fritch, Texas. It is a small town located in the beautiful country of the Texas Panhandle. After graduating from Sanford-Fritch I attended College at West Texas A & M for a year. I then transferred to South Plains College where I met my beautiful wife of 19 years. I attended South Plains College until I decided to pursue a career in the fire service. In 1999, I graduated from Amarillo College Fire Academy and began working for the Perryton Fire Department shortly after. While in Perryton we had two wonderful kids, my daughter Skylar who is 18 and just graduated from Tivy and my son Sterling who is 15 and a sophomore at Tivy. In 2002 I began my career with the Kerrville Fire Department as a firefighter/paramedic. In 2008, I was promoted to driver when Station 4 opened up. I served as a driver for 4 years and then promoted to Lieutenant in 2012. In 2016, I completed my degree in fire science through South Plains College. I served as a Lieutenant for 5 ½ years until promoting to Battalion Chief. I’m excited and looking forward to serving the department and the citizens of Kerrville in my new position.
The Kerrville Fire Department would like to congratulate Firefighter and Licensed Paramedic Arnie Segura on his recent promotion to Driver. Arnie, recipient of the KFD EMS Person of the Year Award for 2016, joined the Department in 2013 after graduation with a degree in EMS from Odessa College. Arnie originally wanted to study banking and finance, but after being convinced by friends to try Emergency Services he says he became hooked. "I am thankful for all of the advice and help along the way, from the Fire Academy in Odessa to everyone in the Kerrville Fire Department", Arnie said. Arnie came to Kerrville when he was just six years old. He is happily married to his lovely wife Sarah, and they have two beautiful and smart daughters, Lily and Rosie. We are lucky to have them all as a part of the KFD family.
