DEPUTY CHIEF


Basic Information

A three-story fire training tower, the Deputy Chief offers four working deck levels. Similar to the Battalion Chief, the Deputy Chief resembles a residential building. However, this facility features a 30' tower, which is ideal for rappelling and laddering. Two burn rooms are standard on this model, one on the first floor and the other on the second floor.
