The state-of-the-art training
facility became fully operational and was put into service in November
2006. The building is used to offer instruction in extinguishing interior
fires, search and rescue and high angle rescue/rappelling. It is one of
only a handful of training buildings in the country to feature a
computerized burn system.
Fire Research building is an outstanding addition to the State Fire
Academy, which continues to grow into one of the finest training
facilities in the country. We are constantly searching for methods and
utilizing specialized training techniques to offer to firefighters across
the country, "said Dale.
