BG Luis Fernandez
Commanding General
TXSG Medical Brigade

Welcome to the website of the Texas State Guard Medical Brigade -- the medical arm of the Texas Military Forces which provides statewide surge capacity medical response.

The ranks of the Medical Brigade are composed of trained, licensed and certified health care professionals and medical support personnel who constantly train and prepare to support state and local public health authorities with surge capability and specialized emergency skills. These individuals serve in various roles depending on the nature of the emergency for which they are called to assist. Units can provide mission-specific response teams or individual cadre depending on the scope and size of the mission. The intent and purpose of the Medical Brigade can best be described as "Texans helping Texans."

Are you interested in joining?

Applications from physicians, nurses, EMT's, mental health professionals, veterinary professionals and non-medical support personnel are sought. Prior military service is not required.  The Texas Medical Rangers provide surge capacity medical response only inside the State of Texas and are not subject to federal service. Be a surge responder and use your skills to help your fellow Texans!
