    Default Online and Onsite fire training academy

    I was wondering if there would be any interest for a new fire training center around the DFW area that would be both a onsite as well as distance learning academy that would have multiple class A burn facilities to go back to a more realistic approach to training. Let me know what you think.

    I understand that there is a list a mile long to get into any of the academies now if you even can and the online academy is always full and can only do so many a year. I was looking at putting the facility on the outskirts of fort worth towards the west in the county to avoid some of the pollution problems.
