Tuesday at Municipal Fire School

Click on the picture to the left to see a photo slideshow of Tuesday action at Municipal Fire School.
Severe weather threatened to halt mid-morning activities at Brayton Fire Field on Tuesday, but only light rain fell as the 80th annual Municipal Fire School continued without delay.

Special Guest: We were privileged to have a visitor today who was at the very first school back in 1929. Mr. Charles Stasny witnessed the first school at the age of seven as his father was the first paid firefighter in Bryan, Texas. You can read more about Stasny and his unique story in an upcoming edition of The Bryan/College Station Eagle.

Public Demonstration: On Wednesday, July 22, TEEX will host its annual Public Demonstration at Brayton Fire Training Field, which is also free to the public. Gates open at 7 p.m. and a children’s fire-awareness class begins at 7:30 p.m. Immediately following the awareness class, TEEX instructors will explain and demonstrate techniques used to extinguish fires on some of the largest live-fueled training props in the world.
