XTREME returns to Texas A&M in June 2017

Tyco Williams Fire & Hazard Control’s annual Xtreme Industrial Fire & Hazard Training will celebrate its 24th anniversary in 2017 by returning to the fire school where it originated at – Brayton Field in College Station, TX.

Robert Moore, director of the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service’s Emergency Services Training Institute, said discussions to conduct the Xtreme school at Brayton have been ongoing for years.

“It just makes sense to have one of the best fire schools operating today located at Brayton,” Moore said.

Drawing emergency responders specializing in industrial fire from around the world, the Xtreme school at Brayton is scheduled for June 5 through 8, 2017. Registration for the school through the WF&HC website begins in June 2016.

Chauncey Naylor, director of emergency response training and education for WF&HC, said the first Xtreme schools, then known as the Les Williams Flammable Liquid Firefighting Foam Workshop, were conducted at Brayton in 1993 and 1994.
