The Need

Per the Insurance Services Office (ISO), firefighters are expected to annually complete the following minimum training:

  • 192 hours of company training

  • 18 hours of facility training

  • 6 hours of hazardous materials training

  • additional driver and officer training

  • additional specialty specific training (confined space, trench rescue, rope rescue, etc.)

To qualify for ISO "facility training," the fire training facility must include at a minimum: 

  1. Live fire training structure, including smoke room

  2. Drill tower at three stories in height

  3. Training area at least two acres in size

Currently, due to a lack of facility, the CCFD fails to complete the expected 18 hours of facility training. This is not safe for our community or our firefighters. 

The CCFD Training Facility

  • The facility will be located on 6.2 acres, north of the Oasis schools and was of the City's Southwest Water Reclamation Facility. 

  • City Council has approved agreements with Sweet Sparkman Architects for design and Wright Construction for build. 

  • Design is currently in process with the goals of maximizing the location now and into the future, being cost-effective, and being good neighbors.

Next Steps

  • Once design is near completion, a town hall meeting will be held for nearby property owners.

  • When the design is completed, a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) will be developed.

  • City Council will be presented the GMP for final approval, and, if approved, construction will state soon thereafter.
