Rolling Oaks Volunteer Fire Department Chief Perry Debord and Assistant Chief Robert Noah were among a select group of guest instructors at the TEEX Municipal Fire School held in late July. 

Both are instructors for Advanced Municipal Fire Operations Flammable Liquids and Gasses (Firefighter V).  The AMFO:FLAG course is the most advanced level of live fire training TEEX offers. 

The week long school is held at the world renowned Brayton Fire Training Field in College Station and each year thousands of fire service personnel participate in the intensive weeklong training courses. This is the first year TEEX changed its curriculum to align with the SFFMA and TCFP Certifications.

Additionally, Noah was appointed a promotion to commander of Project #33 which is the Compressor Station Fires.  This appointment puts Noah in charge of the entire project.

The ROVFD responding territory covers 55 square miles in Northwest Van Zandt County in the Lake Tawakoni area. 

All community members are invited to the monthly meetings held at 2:30 p.m. every second Sunday of the month at the station on 139 VZCR.

The department is also seeking personnel to volunteer in either a firefighting or non-firefighting capacity. For more information, email tnoah@hughes.net.
