On Monday, September 19th, 2022, Fayetteville Technical Community College and Cumberland County held a hose uncoupling event for the Regional Fire & Rescue Training Center.
On a 30-acre site, this state-of-the-art facility includes classrooms, three fire apparatus bays, live fire buildings, burn pads for exterior props, technical rescue areas, and additional facilities for students, emergency responders, and members of the Cumberland County Fire Chiefs’ Association.
President of the Cumberland County Fire Chiefs Association, Fire Chief Freddy Johnson, spoke to the excitement of the facility’s grand opening,
“For Cumberland County Fire Services, today is Christmas in September,” Johnson said. “I’m proud to be in front of our new Regional Fire & Rescue Training Center, which starting today will be operational in making sure that our current firefighters and first responders can maintain their skills or learn new skills and certifications as well as screen and certify our future firefighters, rescue technicians and first responders.”
Prior to this facility, Cumberland County firemen and rescue teams had to travel out of the county and state to get the training they need. HH Architecture is proud to have designed this project meaningful project for Fayetteville Technical Community College, Cumberland County, and our first responders.
