Washington to Break Ground on New Public Safety Training Center

Construction on the new $7.9 million Public Safety Training Center in Washington County is set to begin in November. 

The new Washington County Public Safety Training Center will allow for more joint training opportunities between local law enforcement, firefighters, and EMS who are currently trained at separate sites.

The Herald-Mail reports:

The training building will include four classrooms that can accommodate about 50 people each, four smaller classrooms that can each accommodate about 20 people and a multipurpose room that around 200 people can use, Lewis said.

The multipurpose room can be used for additional classroom space, academy graduation ceremonies and indoor exercises and training, Lewis said.

Plans for the training center campus include facilities needed for training for live burns and a tactical village so first responders can simulate the environment of actual calls, Lewis said.
