To help you understand and comply with the our safety requirements, we have developed the 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. This manual contains information on

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

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
