Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System (TIFMAS) 2nd Annual Symposium
The Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System (TIFMAS) was created to provide for the systematic mobilization, deployment, organization and management of Texas local fire related resources in order to provide assistance in mitigating the effects of emergencies and disasters throughout Texas when requested. The 2nd Annual TIFMAS Symposium is set for June 18th & 19th at the San Antonio Courtyard by Marriott Seaworld Westover Hills.
The symposium is designed to give the fire departments across Texas a better understanding of TIFMAS and its many working parts as resources are called upon to serve the State of Texas. There will be new tools unveiled to help improve responses, discussions and case studies about incidents and the lessons learned, time to meet the Branch coordinators and so much more. The symposium is 2 full days of training and sharing information. Once again, due to the great support by local and state sponsors, the symposium is FREE, but registration is still required.*
