PHOTOS: The old Saint Alphonsus hospital on 12th Avenue Road in Nampa is being used as a training building for first responders before it is demolished. Nampa first responders began training in the hospital earlier this summer and will conclude their exercises later this month, according to a press release. The building is slated for demolition, but Saint Al's officials have not decided on a specific date yet. During the training, Nampa Fire Department employees have been practicing high-rise evolution using standpipe system, completing a multipatient rescue in a facility that uses shelter in place, practicing deploying long hose stretches in a building that has multiple rooms and multiple stories, and practicing removing large amounts of smoke in a large structure with divided spaces.
