Williams Fire & Hazard Control announces educational partnership with Texas A&M University

Williams Fire & Hazard Control Inc., part of Tyco Fire Protection Products, announced today it is the first commercial company to provide university curriculum through its partnership with Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and its world-renowned firefighter academy.

The partnership between Williams and the nation’s leading fire protection school makes Williams the only company of its kind in the industry to receive third-party certification for a training course. The partnership will incorporate a combination of both TEEX and Williams courses to educate trainees at the Williams operational facility in Port Arthur and TEEX students.

“Williams is the most established and proven company in our field. Through this partnership we look forward to adding industry depth, knowledge and experience to our curriculum and programming,” said Robert Moore, Director of TEEX Emergency Services Training Institute.

Williams originated in 1980 and has been on the front line of some of the country’s major industrial fires, including the largest successfully extinguished tank fire in U.S. history. The company specializes in industrial fire response and has substantial experience in fire prevention training involving liquid, gas and hazardous chemicals.

“This partnership is a milestone for our company. It validates our legacy of experience and expertise in the industry,” said Lee Hall, Senior Technical Trainer, Williams Fire & Hazard Control. “To receive recognition from TEEX distinguishes our work as a leading force in the fire protection business, and we couldn’t be more proud.”
