Training Facility
Phase I

| by admin

When The Leary Firefighters Foundation was established in 2000, one of its primary pledges was to finance the building of a new training facility for the Worcester Fire Department. Phase I of this project, The Leary Firefighters Foundation and EMC Corporation Burn Tower and Training Facility, was unveiled on November 1, 2002. The burn tower is used to train firefighters throughout Central Massachusetts, allowing them to simulate many of the emergency situations that they encounter in the line of duty, using real heat and smoke conditions. Training in this facility ensures on-going instruction in all emergency situations that firefighters must face when attacking a fire and rescuing inhabitants.
