The new two-story facility will be the training center for thousands of firefighters and EMS students each year. Trainees will be placed in a realistic environment where they will get to practice rescue scenarios, according to a release from the Ohio Department of Commerce.

“The Ohio Fire Academy has always been a nationally-recognized leader in firefighter training,” said DeWine. “We recognize the importance of providing our first responders with the most relevant and safe training resources. This new search and rescue house will ensure that our firefighters receive top-notch training on realistic simulation props, further enhancing their skills and safety.”
