3,000 People Train on The Commissioner at Elgin Community College
About an hour west of downtown Chicago, in Burlington, Ill., Elgin Community College has a $20 million public safety training facility on 120 acres. Opened in 2016, the state-of-the-art campus includes The Commissioner training tower from Fire Facilities.
Alaska Fire Department Grows Training Facilities
Back in 2001, the Central Mat-Su Fire Department in Wasilla, Alaska purchased The Fire Chief training tower. Now, 20 years later, the department plans to enhance its 80-acre training facility with the addition of The Hall Crawler from Fire Facilities.
Making the Most of a Training Tower Investment
The Fire Department in Murfreesboro, Tenn. is good at sharing. Since the installation of The Commissioner fire training tower in 2017, they’ve shared the structure with local police and members of the Rutherford County Sheriff, EMS, and Fire and Rescue.
