The second annual Washington County Firefighter Field Day was held Oct. 13 at the Texas Engineering Extension’s Emergency Services Training Institute Brayton Field in College Station. Fire fighters from Washington County fire departments — including Brenham, Burton, Salem, Meyersville, Rocky Creek, Gay Hill, Prairie Hill and Latium — attended the school. Students receive hands on training in structure firefighting in the multi story complex at Brayton Field. TEEX’s Brayton Field is considered the world’s best training facility. A grant from the Texas Forest Service was used to help fund the tuition for the students.
