They protect us.  We protect them. 

The Texas Emergency Services Retirement System (TESRS or the 'System') is a state agency that administers a pension System for 229 member volunteer fire and emergency departments across the state.  In addition to providing retirement benefits, active members are covered by death and disability benefits.  Members are also eligible for fire science-related tuition benefits.

The System is a partnership between the State of Texas and local governments in recognition of the enormous value that volunteers bring to local communities. In Texas and across the country, volunteer fire departments account for over 75% of fire service and provide critical services to local communities.  Membership in the TESRS System helps volunteer departments recruit and retain volunteers, which is good for Texas.  We're proud of our program and all of our member volunteers - Go TESRS!
