PROJECT DESCRIPTION  

Phase II of the training campus is comprised of field training structures, props and "dirty" classroom buildings specifically designed to train fire and police personnel. 

Fire and Rescue props include three propane fed live fire training simulators; the Running Fuel Spill Simulator, the Inter-changeable prop simulator (fire extinguisher training pad), and a Structural Fire Fighting Burn Building. 

The Structural Fire Fighting Prop consists of a multi-level adjustable maze, a four story tower with repelling equipment, three burn rooms and a roof ventilation chop-out prop.

Police props include a multi-faceted simulation building with several different scenario rooms (fast food restaurant, bank, hotel lobby, hotel rooms with balcony, sniper keep, and warehouse area), Hogan’s Alley, gas exposure training structure, and K-9 training and agility field with day care kennels.

The props and structures are designed and placed on the site in such a manner to create an urban scenario setting for joint training exercises, vehicle approach exercises, and command center and inter-agency protocol training.
