The Fire Training Facility is located at 1040 Emergency Drive in central Loveland. The facility includes a burn building for live structural fire evolutions, a five story tower for high rise training, a two story smoke house for basic skills training and a large building collapse rubble pile that simulations heavy / technical rescue situations. Other live fire props include propane (flammable gas) fires, vehicle fires, flashover/fire behavior simulators and a positive pressure fire attack building. The classroom facilities include a large room that can hold up to 60 people and a smaller room designed for classes of approximately 18 students. Colorado’s first virtual reality command training center also resides on the property, making LFRA the State Regional training site for Hazard Zone Management System. These classrooms are supplemented by training rooms at Fire Station 1 and Fire Station 6 that are used for company level training classes. In 2015, LFRA purchased the property adjacent to the current training facility. This added and additional 4 acres for future expansion. It also contains a large storage facility, Shop, and office building. A rail spur also resides on the property allowing us to partner with Burlington Northern and bring in rail car training props no available to other organizations.
