The Penn Twp. FD opened its Live Fire Training Facility on 9/17/12. This facility is made up of 40′ cargo containers that department members have modified while on duty to be compliant with NFPA 1403 in order to be used as Live Fire Training Facility. Currently tihs is only one of two live fire training facilities in St. Joseph County, the other being the Clay Fire Territory Facility which is also the IDHS District 2 Training Center.
This facility features multiple burn locations, on the 1st floor, and the 2nd floor will have a firefighter survival/SCBA confidence prop at a later date. Here are some photos from the first day of burns. If any local department is interested in scheduling this facility for training, please contact Training Chief Brian Kazmierzak -574-255-5075.
