Hi guys, i need some help.
I live in ohio, and got my ff lv2 while in high school as well as my emt basic. Im thinking of moving to texas and start building a life there and setting down some roots. Ive been thinking about doing this for a while and am now seriously looking into the details of moving down there. But what i really want to knowis will my ff lv2 carry over. Ive tried to find an answer on line and i cant seem to find a clear cut answer. Or really any answer, or a number i can call to get answer.
So here i am. Does anyone know right off the bat? Or a website or number i can call? I would really appreciate any imput, THANK YOU!!!

Texas has a very unique system where volunteer training and certification is managed by one agency and career training and certification is handled by a second agency.
They have some reciprocity with other states but often because of the two-tiered system, it's limited.
On the EMS side, if you are National Registry, they will allow you to operate under NR until you expire. At that point will have to retest for TX certification.
As a volunteer you will be dealing with the SFFMA - State Fireman's and Fire Marshal's Association of Texas - which is the organization that sets the standards for volunteer members.
I posted their website: http://www.sffma.org/
They are the agency that sets up most of the training in TX that we attend, in conjunction with TEEX, which is the state training agency through the Texas A & M system.
If you are looking for a career position, you would be dealing with the Texas Commission on Fire and the standards that they set for career members.
Here is their website: http://www.tcfp.texas.gov/index.asp

BEST advice call certification direct and ask all questions and make sure you get correct paperwork to them
