TRAINING FACILITY

Located on CR 375 North, Anderson, IN 46011, the training facility was donated by the Frankton-Lapel School Corporation for use in training FVFD firefighters. There are two buildings on the property. The first contains a partial two-story house for use in simulating a structure fire. The first floor is elevated to provide a crawlspace, and there are stairs to a second floor. The building can be flooded with smoke in order to run search and extrication scenarios that approximate a real-world situation. SCBA confidence course can be run in the same building for familiarizing people w/ their SCBA and getting used to moving through confined or restricted spaces. There’s also an asphalt extrication pad for practicing auto extrications.
