Training Props & Facilities

Administrative Building/Classrooms

The Administrative Building contains 10 classrooms, an auditorium that seats 250, a full kitchen and cafeteria, a pump maintenance room, an immersion lab, equipment and locker rooms, and apparatus bays that house two engines.

In addition to classroom instruction, our cadre of over 150 part-time instructors provides hands-on practical skills training using our state-of-the-art structural burn building, drill tower, smoke house, drafting pit, flammable gas pad, confined space simulator, and trench rescue prop.

Structural Burn Building

The Structural Burn Building complex includes a two-story residential burn building, a two-story commercial burn building, and a four-story high-rise burn building for interior firefighting training.

Drill Tower

A five- and four-story building, the Drill Tower is used for aerial apparatus and ladder work, simulated high-rise training with a standpipe, and rope rescue training.

Smoke House

The Smoke House is a two-story structure containing a maze for practicing search and rescue skills and SCBA familiarization and practice.

Flammable Gas Pad

The Flammable Gas Pad is used for flammable gas and fire extinguisher training. Several mock-ups are used for fire extinguishment and flow control.

Confined Space Simulator

The Confined Space Simulator is a two-story structure contained within the Drill Tower that effectively represents both horizontal and vertical confined spaces and the hazards that may be found at a confined space incident. Users are able to create dynamic scenarios involving multiple entrants and rescues in a safe and controlled environment.

Trench Rescue Prop

The Trench Rescue Prop contains both straight line and intersecting trenches as well as features that allow the simulation of trench lip and toe failures as well as underground utilities.
