Who We Are

Bastrop County First Responders (BCFR) is a First Responder Organization (FRO) made up of residents or persons employed in Bastrop County, whose mission is to provide emergency medical care to the sick and injured until an EMS unit arrives. Thereafter BCFR is to continue to assist as necessary, including accompanying the medic unit to the hospital.


Our History

BCFR was founded in 1988 as an all volunteer organization to assist Bastrop county EMS at the scene of medical emergencies. Members are certified by the Texas Department of Health as Emergency Care Assistants (ECA) through Licensed Paramedics (LP) and are trained to provide care according to the current county medical and operational protocols set forth by the Medical Director. BCFR provides emergency response to 911 calls for the transport provider as well as medical standbys for many local events.

Our Current Work

We are currently teaching our first EMT Class and growing the number of volunteers.


Our Future

We will continue to teach EMS courses and expand our capabilities.
