The North Training Ground is where our 5-story mixed use tower is located. Built in 2000, the training Tower simulates a multitude of structures and occupancy types. It is here that we simulate many differing types of incident responses, allowing our Firefighters to practice their skills in real world situations, and maximizing their continuing education.
The West Training Ground contains specialized props ranging from rail cars, to pressurized vessels, to a manufactured home. It is in this area of the facility that we can simulate high risk specialized incidents for our special response groups.
Our goals are simple:
Deliver a quality training schedule that reflects the needs of our Firefighters, and the needs of those we serve.
Consistently deliver our programs, ensuring that all members have the opportunity to receive the best education available.
Encourage everyone to seek a higher level of training and education, and mentor the next generation of fire service instructors.
Leadership for a better Fire District today, Education for tomorrow, Mentorship for the next generation.
