Nacogdoches Fire & Rescue is home to the Pineywoods Incident
Management Team, a Type III All Hazard unit developed to support large
scale or long duration incidents. The team is part of the Lone Star
State Incident Management Team coordinated by the Texas A&M Forest
Service. Nacogdoches firefighters, along with other city officials and
representatives from Nacogdoches and adjacent counties provide personnel
with expertise in all areas of incident management.
All Nacogdoches firefighters are trained in the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and most firefighters have received additional training and experience in various command and general staff roles.
Nacogdoches firefighters have served in deployments across the United States in logistics, command, operations and planning capacities. These responses, made at the request of the State, are reimbursed by the Texas A&M Forest Service through interlocal agreements.
