Fire Departments



TEXAS FIRECONNECT PORTAL

Most of the wildland fires in Texas go unreported at the state and national levels, resulting in missed opportunities for significant federal funding. Everyone loses when fires are unreported, including fire departments, the state and Texans. Additionally, without complete fire reporting, it is difficult to accurately express wildland fire issues at the state level. The TFS Online Fire Department Fire Reporting System is useful in a number of ways such as:

• Reported wildfire causes can be used to develop focused prevention programs
• Documented costs per reported fire are recognized by FEMA for required cost documentation
• Queries can access useful maps, data lists and daily fire statistics

PREPARING FOR WILDFIRES

Local firefighters are our first line of defense against disasters. Texas A&M Forest Service capacity building programs have awarded over $281 million in grants to Texas fire departments including training for 84,294 firefighters. Eligible fire departments can receive valuable assistance through programs offered by the Capacity Building Department. These programs enhance the ability of firefighters to protect themselves and the public from fire and related hazards.

We are proud to serve Texas fire departments and encourage participation in our many programs.
