Phase 1 of this training facility will resemble a 2-story residential structure that will accommodate live-fire training. The rear of the structures will resemble a 2-story commercial (hotel-style) occupancy. This facility will allow training staff to simulate infrequent, high-hazard events and allow our firefighters to practice new techniques in a safe and non-emergency setting. The complex is unique, innovative and will provide quality training opportunities for years to come. More phases to follow in the coming years.
Abercrombie Architects designed the center and Jacobs Construction & Tegrity Contractors will be essential in building the complex.
Phase 1 will be completed in 2023.
