Field Safety

TEEX is the world’s premier emergency services training provider. One of the ways this has been accomplished is by incorporating safety into everything we do. The result of this is training that is both safe and of the highest quality.

To help you understand and comply with the our safety requirements, we have developed the ESTI Student Safety Manual This manual is applicable to all TEEX-sponsored training, whether conducted at Brayton Fire Training Field (BFTF), Cooperative Learning Centers (CLC), area schools, or client-owned facilities.

The manual contains information on

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Requirements
  • Use of Eye Protection Equipment
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Heat Effects
  • Facilities

It is the expectation of TEEX that all staff, students, and guest instructors comply with the requirements of this manual.

safety posterFace/Eye Protection Requirement

Recently there has been confusion about our face/eye protection requirements here at the fire field. The Student Safety Manual states the following:

For any exterior, live-fire training, the minimum protection includes an NFPA 1971-approved firefighter’s helmet with ear flaps. The 1971-approved helmet must have:

  • the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) faceshield, or
  • NFPA 1971-approved goggles, or
  • both.
