The Taylorville Fire Department recently completed work on a new training facility that will allow the department to give it’s firefighters training in a more realistic environment so they’re better prepared to fight fires in the community. The facility comes in handy, as the department has hired several new members who will be using the training facility before undergoing further training to become full fledged firefighters.
Taylorville Fire Chief Mike Crews says the community was very supportive of getting the new facility built.
The location will be seeing heavy use soon as the department utilizes the facility to help train new new additions to the department.
Along with the new facility, the fire department is working on attaining several grants that would help the department both further their training, as well as purchase new equipment.
