    If you have IFSAC certs(seals) from OH ten its just an application and fee. If not you an possibly challenge the exam and practicals otherwise you'll have to go through another academy. When i came to TX it had been 10 years since I got my FF2 in OH and I had no IFSAC so I went through fire academy again. As for EMS you need national registry for straight reciprocity.

    Best advice call the commission direct

    You also may want to call back and confirm what you were told

    You can probably challenge national registry test to get it back.

    they guys at TCFP are super helpful and will answer your questions quickly. just contact the certifications dept. tell them what you have, what you've done and that you need the most efficient way to get your certs completed.
