On Friday, October 9, dirt flew as the City officially kicked-off the construction of the Plano Fire-Rescue Fire Training Center. The new facility will be located at 4637 McDermott Road.  

“This facility allows Plano’s training staff to simulate infrequent high-hazard events and lets our firefighters practice new techniques in a safe and non-emergency setting,” said Fire Chief Sam Greif. “The complex is unique and innovative, and will provide quality training opportunities for years to come.” 

Funding for the $14.8 million project comes from the approved 2017 bond referendum. The new 2-acre complex, includes state of the art amenities: 

    Training administration building with office space
    Training/classrooms and locker rooms
    Fitness area
    Mock three-bay apparatus room
    Two-story single-family home training prop
    Six-story burn tower
    Two-story multi-family apartment prop
    Technical rescue training facility

The project should be completed by early 2022.
