Fire as a Weapon Integrated Response

The ALERRT Center at Texas State University and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) have been awarded funding to develop a state-of-the-art eLearning program to train Fire and Law Enforcement personnel on responding to Fire as a Weapon (FAAW) events.


Fire as a weapon (FAAW) is the use of fire, smoke, or flammable materials normally used with other attack vectors that confound incident response and which requires an integrated response for incident stabilization. Criminals and terrorists have used FAAW in many incidents, including well-known incidents such as: Waco TX, 1993; Mumbai India, 2008; Ferguson MO, 2014-15; and Honolulu HI, 2020 as well as many smaller incidents. FAAW incidents are continually evolving, both in magnitude and frequency, and the training to mitigate FAAW must also continually evolve.

4 hours are awarded with ALERRT training for this course. 

This course satisfies the TCOLE requirements for course #3356 and will count as 4 hours of TCOLE training. This course does count toward the SB1852 mandate.
