SAN ANGELO - Plans for a $2.6 million Concho Valley Regional Training Center are in the works after San Angelo was awarded a $1.2 million federal grant to fund the project.
The fire training center will be built on a 12-acre complex and will replace the SAFD training facility and tower at 1525 S. Concho Dr. It will include a burn building of at least four stories, a classroom and offices for training staff and storing fire props. It will be built behind the city's animal shelter, 3142 US 67 N.
The facility is expected to be operational by fall 2015, Brian Dunn, the fire chief for the City of San Angelo.
The new academy could train anywhere from eight to 12 people in classes that could last up to 18 months for fire and EMS certification.
