Livingston Fire & Rescue (LF&R) is proposing to construct a Fire Training Facility in Livingston, Montana. The proposed training facility would be available to mutual aid partners in Park County, as well as other departments throughout the state. One of the main goals of the training facility is to be able to train and certify emergency responders to National Firefighter Certification Levels I and II.  Planning and design of the training facility were based on this concept. After visiting regional facilities and researching other department training facilities via websites and print media, LF&R and Park County Rural Fire District No. 1 (PCRFD) have conceived a facility that will meet LF&R training needs. This structure will be constructed using six 40’ x 8’ ConX containers and will have three levels with burn rooms on two levels. Operations that can be simulated in the structure include, but are not limited to: ropes and knots, fire department communication, fire ground operations, rapid intervention crew, offensive fire attack, flat and pitched roof ventilation, fire behavior and vents, primary search, live burn, salvage, hazardous materials, flammable liquid fires, interior attack, flammable gas fires, energized electrical equipment fires, fire cause and origin, fire prevention and preparedness, equipment maintenance and testing, wildfire, vehicle extrication, and low angle rope rescue.
