Additional Information

The TFCA Technology Committee was created to improve the resources concerning advancing technology to the TFCA membership.  The current committee has established three priorities to accomplish this:


  1. Provide a searchable database on departments and/or agencies implementing or using various types of technology. Departments who want references for specific technology projects which are provided without bias.
  2. Communicate to the membership regarding new or evolving technologies (See technology articles above)
  3. Communicate to the membership technology specific events related to public safety technologies

The Technology Committee is consistently working to add value to the membership and act as a resource for those technology related challenges facing the Texas Fire Service today.
