    We received funding for a mobile burn building from our 2003 grant application. Is there something I can help you with?

    Our burn building is basically nothing more than a cargo-type trailer that is rated for class-A fires. It has dividers that are moveable so that configurations can be made inside. It is manufactured by Fire Facilities and cost, if I remember correctly, $66,000. The guys love it! It provides us live-fire training opportunities closed to home at our convenience. They have used it several times. If you check out our web site I believe there are a couple of articles pertaining to it's dedication and the grant we used to get it. Fire Facilities was great to work with.
