This tower is used to train firefighters and rescue personnel. In the tower we train on things like fire ventilation, fire attack, sprinkler systems, standpipes, rope rescue, victim rescue and much more. The tower may be the most noticeable portion of the training facility but this is only the beginning. We also have props that allow us to train for vehicle fires, aircraft firefighting and rescue, flashover, confined spaces, structural collapse, vehicle extrication and much more.
Logan Fire Department has entered into an Inter-local Agreement that was developed so other agencies could take advantage of this facility. These other agencies contribute supplies as needed and have assisted with the continued development of the site. This arrangement has worked well since its inception. Hundreds of firefighters have received training at this facility.
Logan City Fire Department's employees have to maintain certifications through the Bureau of EMS, and the State Fire Academy. The recertifications include written and practical tests. Some of the certifications include:
Advanced Cardiac Life Support
