Fire facility first of its kind for Spartanburg Co.

Boiling Springs Fire Department just installed a new fire training facility thanks to a grant from FEMA and private donors.

The training facility offers several unique training scenarios, including training courses, obstacles, and a burn room, with ability to vent from the roof and control the flames.

The roof also allows for industrial training.

The mobile unit is unique because everything inside has the ability to be changed to make training different every time.

This unit will be at the Mountain View fire building and directly service 6 mutual aid departments. Currently the closest facility is in Duncan over 12 miles away, which means departments are pulled from their fire district while trying to train.

There will be a formal dedication for the training facility in April.
