Oct. 26 Webcast - TCFP

As more ESDs employ career firefighters, they become subject to regulation from the Texas Commission on Fire Protection. Join SAFE-D and TCFP Executive Director Michael Wisko for a discussion about the role the Commission plays and what might change in the upcoming Legislative Session. Texas A&M's V.G. Young Institute of County Government has certified this training for one (1) hour of ESD Commissioner Training Credit.
6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26. On the day of the webcast, registrants will receive an email with a link to the streaming video.
This SAFE-D webcast is sponsored in part by generous support from Casco Industries and Precision Utility.
