Fire training centre open house

The Courtenay Fire Department is opening the doors to the new W.A. Lane MacDonald Fire Training Centre.

On Saturday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the public is invited to tour the facility and enjoy light refreshments.

The training centre features a live-fire training building constructed from sea containers, plus a training area encircled by a built-to-scale city street, working fire hydrants, and space for driver training and pumper operator training.

The facility was recently named after long-time training officer, retired Courtenay Fire Department captain Lane MacDonald.

The training centre is located on Waters Place, off Lerwick Road, directly across from the entrance to the new Comox Valley Hospital under construction. Once on Waters Place, follow the gravel road which turns right before the water towers.

For more information on the fire training centre or the open house, call the Courtenay Fire Department at 250-334-2513 or email fire@courtenay.ca
