Miles City Fire and rescue opened a new fire training center, allowing them to train in their own backyard instead of traveling statewide. According to a release from Miles City Fire and rescue, the new center will allow crews to simulate live fires. Batallion Chief Mike Miller said in the release the new center will give his crew access to specialized skills while saving the state money. He also said before this new center, the first time fire fighters saw real dangerous situations would be on a live fire. The fire training center was built with assistance from MoFi and the Community Facilities Re-lending Program. The new center is located behind the fire station downtown. And we have an update on the Mile City Firehouse in front of that new training center. A secretary with Miles City Fires tells KULR-8 firefighters are currently still being housed in the firehouse.
