Springing from an EMS training program, the privately held training company National First Responder Training Complex has extended into hazmat, rescue, OSHA and industrial response training.
With 20 highly trained instructors, including hazmat specialists, NFRTC offers hazmat awareness, operations, technician, incident commander and hazwoper training. Fire and EMS training remains at the core of NFRTC’s course offerings.
The instructors have years of experience, not only in the classroom, but, with real-life experience on calls. The crew trains every day whether it be with instructors or cadets.
To date, the company says, its biggest win was opening the facility and training complex. The complex is on 5 acres of land and has a 24,000 square foot education building. There is a training tower suited for live fire and rescue training, as well as several classrooms.
TEMSA Emergency Services and NFRTC were founded in 2018 from Texas EMS Academy as part of a natural progression in the growing need for higher levels of protection in Corpus Christi and surrounding areas, The company also trains clients from across the country and internationally.
Like other training companies, the biggest challenges they face are finding funding and keeping up with training on its modalities. The company says providing the highest level of training and education to its cadets and students is a must, which becomes a challenge the staff is ready to accept and meet.
