Fire Training Center
The importance of properly training personnel in the Fire Department can never be overemphasized. From the initial phase of employment each firefighter is trained in basic firefighting through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and Emergency Medical skills and procedures. Whether the task is saving victims from smoke-filled buildings, confined spaces or burning vehicles, the Baytown Fire Department’s training field will be equipped to replicate almost any scenario that a firefighter might expect to face on an emergency call. The battery of drills conducted at the field will include exercises that sharpen survival skills, search and rescue techniques, and a variety of tactics to be used in specific life-threatening situations.
The 22-acre Baytown Fire Training Complex, located at 7022 Bayway Drive, will be utilized by the Baytown Fire Department, local industry fire brigades, and surrounding fire departments seeking emergency scenarios in residential/commercial structure fires, high-rise rescue, structural collapse/heavy rescue and other mass-casualty emergencies, railcar hazmat simulators, compressed gas pipeline projects, additional residential training props, LPG fires, industrial plant structures and a ship that will be used during life-like training simulations.
The complex, when completed will be a state-of-the-art education and training facility serving Baytown and the surrounding area.
