COLLEGE STATION - The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) has purchased a 17.8-acre tract adjacent to Disaster City. The newly acquired land brings the total land area of the Emergency Preparedness Campus to nearly 297 acres.
In addition to Disaster City, the campus includes the world-renowned Brayton Fire Training Field and the Emergency Operations Training Center.
The emergency preparedness campus doubled in size in 2011, when a total of 159 acres adjoining Brayton Fire Training Field was transferred to TEEX from the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The additional property included a 31-acre tract on Nuclear Science Rd. and a 128-acre tract immediately northeast of the Emergency Operations Training Center.
A team from TEEX Emergency Services Training Institute is now developing plans for the use of the new property as well as the 159 acres obtained in 2011.
