For the folks coming to the Brayton Fire Training Field for live-fire training...

There has been some confusion lately about compliant fire helmets and faceshields for live-fire training at Brayton Fire Training Field. This video will help explain our policy better and show firefighters what types of eye and face protection are acceptable by our policy.

From the #TAMU  Times...

One year after a massive explosion leveled or damaged much of the town of West, Texas, we're looking back at +The Texas A&M University System's response to the disaster. 

"Texas Task Force 1, the elite search-and-rescue unit of the +Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) responding in force, and faculty and staff from the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Science being dispatched to assist with the handling and treatment of injured animals."

"Following the explosion, one of the first things +Texas A&M University officials did was to reach out to students who had family members residing in and around West and various student groups on campus mounted efforts to provide needed supplies and other forms of support for citizens in the affected area.

GeoSuite®, a software application originally developed for the military, is the newest technology asset in the Texas Task Force 1 equipment cache. The digital tool was modified and customized for urban search and rescue operations by General Dynamics, and Texas Task Force 1 is the first urban search and rescue team to deploy it operationally.

The web-based application allows responders on the scene to provide critical data in real-time by touching icons that appear in the app on their cell phone, tablet or other mobile device. TX-TF1 used GeoSuite during its deployment to Moore, OK, in 2013.

TEEX training is diverse.

Our Infrastructure and Safety Division includes transportation and highway safety training. We are one of the principal providers of training in work zone traffic control; serving contractors, subcontractors and utilities that work on or near TxDOT roadways.  

We have training that qualifies hundreds of flaggers each year for duty in work zone activities, per TxDOT and other agency requirements.

World renowned for its hands-on, customized training, the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service offers a wide range of technical and skills training programs aimed at employed workers and those entering the labor force. During its fiscal year 2011, TEEX provided training and technical assistance to more than 180,450 people from all 50 states, five U.S. territories, the District of Columbia and 73 countries.

TEEX is home to the world renown Brayton Fire Training Field, and Disaster City® a mock community featuring full-scale, collapsible structures designed to simulate various levels of disaster and wreckage which can be customized for the specific training needs of any group. 

TEEX is a member of The Texas A&M University System, one of the largest and most complex systems of higher education in the United States. Through a statewide network of 11 university campuses, seven state agencies and a comprehensive health science center, the A&M System educates more than 120,000 students, conducts more than $772 million in research and reaches another 22 million people through service and outreach programs each year.
