Ribbon Cutting: Saugatuck Township Fire District

The Saugatuck Township Fire District, in cooperation with 5 neighboring fire departments, constructed a Live Fire Training Facility. A Live Fire Training Facility is a building specifically designed to train firefighters to enter a building and put fires out.  Its entirely made of non-flammable materials, in this case, steel shipping containers.  A fire is intentionally started in the buildings and fire fighters practice putting the fire out under controlled conditions to train their personnel. F&V assisted the Saugatuck Township Fire District with engineering.
