  • WILDLAND FIRE RESPONSE: ALL-HAZARD RESPONSE

    In addition to fighting wildfires, Texas A&M Forest Service (TFS) is routinely called upon under the State Emergency Management Plan (PDF, 1.5MB) to assist during all-hazard emergencies such as natural and man-made disasters and domestic situations. TFS employs the nationally recognized Incident Command System (ICS) which ensures effective and efficient incident management. 

     

    TFS maintains a workforce of highly trained and experienced personnel and works with other responding state agencies level to increase the effectiveness of response through shared training and common communications.

     

    Additionally, federal and out-of-state resources and cooperators are often called upon through the National Wildfire Coordinating Group to share resources nationwide.
