EMERGENCY MEETING OF THE TEXAS COMMISSION ON FIRE PROTECTION: FEE INCREASES LOOMING

The Texas Commission on Fire Protection is responsible for providing examinations and certifications to fire personnel and regulating fire training facilities.  Under state law, the fees for certification must be paid by a city if the certificate is required for the appointment of the fire personnel.  Also, the fees are limited to an amount that reflects the cost to the commission of providing the examination, certification, or inspection.

The commission has announced, with little additional information, that it will hold an emergency meeting regarding the possibility of “raising fees” on Monday, March 14, at 9:00 a.m. in Room 1-104 of the Travis Building, located at 1701 N. Congress in Austin.  For more information on this meeting or on the commission, please go to www.tcfp.state.tx.us.

The League plans to submit comments on the proposal and to attend the hearing.
