The Oakland TRECOM Public Safety Training Center is a state-of-the-art joint-use facility located on an urban site in Oakland, California. The 7-acre site is nestled within a residential community experiencing revitalization and, similar to the CSU site, is bound by rail lines. The site will be home to a new 22,000 SF state-of-the-art fire station, 22,000 SF community center/aquatics center, a 45,000 SF FEMA Task Force Center, and a fully functional fire academy. The 45,000 SF FEMA Task Force Center is designed to resist the most violent earthquakes and houses the Bay Area Urban Search and Rescue Team and its supplies. Given the propensity for seismic activity in the region, this facility will provide unique and innovative structural collapse props intended to hone first responders bracing and shoring skills. Training elements are located at the center of the site to allow training operations to better integrate into the context of the surrounding community. Such training features include Class A Burn Building, Rail Props, Vehicle Extrication, a Multi-Purpose building fit with Class B fuel props, and Search & Rescue homes that replicate the region’s vernacular architecture.
