  • FIRE DEPARTMENT PROGRAMS: CAREER FIRE DEPARTMENT PROGRAMS

    Texas A&M Forest Service is committed to helping fire departments obtain critically needed equipment, emergency vehicles, training and other resources to protect the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards. 

     

    Career Fire Department Assistance Programs enhance the emergency response capabilities of combination departments (21 or more paid members) or fully paid departments.

     

    We encourage fire departments to consider each program and apply for those which you are eligible.
