Firefighters from all over California and the west will get the opportunity to learn and take their skills to a new level on the Shasta College Redding campus with their new Regional Public Safety Training Center. Finishing touches were being made to the facility a few weeks ago as they had originally planned to unveil the facility in February but due to weather conditions, the unveiling had to be rescheduled to Thursday, March 14. Phase one of the Regional Public Safety Training Center includes a wooden structure, that mimics breaking through a roof to fight a structure fire, and two metal training towers, where basic and advanced firefighting and rescue techniques can be taught. One of the towers recreates real-life conditions with gas-powered flames that can reach a couple thousand degrees.
