At the end of September the Riverside Fire Department used their brand new facility for training for the first time.

This new burn building provides a controlled and safe environment to simulate different situations the fire department may see in action. The burn building consists of of three steel containers, two on the bottom and one on top to add the challenges the team might see in a second level of a building. Firefighters were able to replicate what they would see in a large structure fire. They can also use the facility to mimic what they may see in a house fire and other search and rescue situations. The facility will be used for monthly training.
