Phase II (16-hour) is designed to teach strategic and tactical requirements to properly handle, either defensively or offensively, an industrial emergency incident with the resources that your agency has available. The classroom portion of this class is targeted to give a specific tactical approach at handling industrial emergency incidents. The practical hands-on exercises introduce and reinforce the tactical methods required to mitigate an industrial emergency incident. This course provides a unique opportunity for municipal emergency response personnel to apply specific strategies and tactics for the assessment, management and control of industrial emergency incidents through simulated and live fire activities.
There are no prerequisites for this course.

Annual Fire Training School Registration Requirements
Annual Schools require that you use the online registration system.
We have streamlined the process for payment via Texas A&M Forest Service funding (H.B. 2604 or TIFMAS Grant Assistance Program). Before you register for a course, you must attain approval from the Texas A&M Forest Service for training tuition. On your approval letter, there will be a voucher approval number. Each student approved for tuition grant assistance will need this number.
Register for your course through your TEEX student portal. On the payment section, choose Purchase Order and enter the VFDE number (for example E123456). If your department was approved for multiple students, each student up to the maximum approved in the training tuition request may use the same VFDE number. If the total amount due is greater than the total amount allowed by the tuition voucher, the individual/department will be responsible for the difference. You are no longer required to email or fax the approval letter to TEEX/ESTI unless it is specifically requested by TEEX staff.
The PO contact email needs to be either yourself or a responsible person within your organization.
A new data field has been added to the payment process. The Tax ID (Tax Payer ID, EIN or FEIN) will be the number assigned to your organization. The field is required and needs to be in the following format: xx-xxxxxxx.
Annual Fire Training School Late Registration
The full rate will be applied after the early-bird registration deadline.
