The Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team is specially trained in those aspects of saving life or property that employ the use of tools and skills that exceed those normally reserved for fire fighting, medical emergency, and rescue.
The Team is comprised of 18 members and one Team Leader. There are six members per shift, with four located at Fire Station 2, and two alternates per shift located in other stations throughout the city.
Each member of the team is expected to attend training each month that will enable the team to be ready for any incident. To accomplish this, the team attends one drill each month per shift for a total of 36 drills per year with the Williamson County Technical Rescue team. In addition, the team attends one 40-hour long class per year.
