Marana's fired up about new training center

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of attending Northwest Fire District’s Training Center Grand Opening. Guests were treated to a dynamic demonstration and guided tours of the center.

The $9 million facility has training and classroom space, including a residential building for fire and smoke. The interior has a long hallway as you would find in a hotel with doors on each side. The back of the building is set up like a two story apartment with balconies and windows that can be used for rescue training.

 Also on the grounds is a high-rise fire and rescue facility where firefighters learn to repel from four stories, and two classroom buildings. The center has railroad tanker cars and room for staging auto accidents.

 This facility is a great addition to Marana, and I’m proud that firefighters from across the region will have access to it to gain critical, life-saving skills.
