Compliance program overview
The commission's compliance program helps ensure the safety of regulated fire protection personnel by:
- Inspecting protective clothing and equipment.
- Inspecting training records.
The agency has compliance inspectors in Allen, Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock and Lufkin. These inspectors travel to every regulated entity at least once every two years to check fire protection personnel certification status, training records, protective clothing, breathing air test records and self-contained breathing apparatus. If a department is in violation of a state law or commission rule, the compliance section works with the entity to develop a plan that will lead to compliance.
The compliance program's main phone number is (512) 936-3830.
