The Phoenix Fire Department Training Academy has three fire apparatus bays, training classroom space, breakout rooms, locker facilities, offices, and numerous support facilities. As with every Phoenix Fire Department project, sustainability is carefully woven into the new training academy’s plan.
Building materials were carefully selected to minimize environmental impact. By selecting materials that were harvested and manufactured locally, the Phoenix Fire Department contributed to the local economy and reduced carbon monoxide emissions from transportation.
Additionally, the new academy includes a water harvesting system that collects water from the burn buildings during training and stores the reclaimed water for future landscape irrigation.
Training Academy Grand Opened September 2010
