Back home again in Rensselaer


In 2001, the department added a "Live Fire" training facility located at the corner of Oak and Weston Streets. This unique training facility is a building capable of handling live burns, where firefighters can get first hand experience of "Live Fire" training, but in a controlled atmosphere.
This facility is also available for use by surrounding fire departments as well.
Much of the training is based on state and federal requirements and to meet these requirements, training must remain constant. Larger training exercises, including combining with other departments, are sometimes held on Saturdays. In conjunction with the Jasper County office of Emergency Management, and/or the Local Area Planning Committee (LEPC), unannounced large scale disaster training is also provided, usually once annually.
