Fire Training Facility

The new DMACC Fire Training Facility features a customized, three-story fire training tower that was fabricated using ISO freight containers (also known simply as shipping containers) and installed on a deep cement base. The tower was completed in May 2023 and is now being used by DMACC Fire Science students, as well as by several fire departments and agencies, to meet official training and education requirements.

DMACC is committed to providing high-quality education and training opportunities for the next generation of firefighting professionals, and the new DMACC Fire Training Facility is designed to help prepare students for safety and success in the field.
