Seifert and his wife, Darcy, were married on November 18, 2006. They met in Boerne, where she worked as an ambulance paramedic. “Darcy is not currently working as a Paramedic. She is teaching preschool at our daughter’s school. She plans to work as a Paramedic again once our kids are a little older.” They have two children – Will and Mandy. And when he’s not fighting fires or doing his assistant chief stuff, Seibert enjoys hanging out with the family. He also enjoys barbequing and rooting for the Texas Rangers, the Cowboys, and the Spurs. Perhaps because weather plays a critical role in his job, Seibert is a self-described weather enthusiast. He has several weather gauges at his home in Boerne, including temperature, humidity, wind, and rain detectors, all featuring digital readouts. He doesn’t describe himself as a weather forecaster, but he enjoys tracking weather. He also enjoys woodworking. He worked with wood in high school, and he still enjoys it. "It's in my blood," he laughs. "Both my father and grandfather were amazing woodworkers. Perhaps as I get older, I'll do more of it.” As for the Terrell Hills Fire Department, Seibert says when we have openings for firefighters, we are looking for kind, compassionate, caring people, who have a passion for the job. Seibert fits that description to a “T.” At present, there are 16 fulltime firefighters on the force. In Terrell Hills, the assistant chief says, they see more house than vehicle fires. Like everyone in his profession, Seibert urges homeowners to install smoke detectors and to be sure they are working. He also cautions residents to be aware that ashes, in a fireplace or an outdoor fire pit, can be extremely dangerous. That's how too many fires start – from ashes people think are not a threat. It’s clear, Seibert has found a home in Terrell Hills Fire House. He has no plans to go elsewhere.
