Beginning at 8:00 AM on Wednesday, November 6th Grand Junction Fire Department Recruit Academy will conduct a training burn in the empty home at Horizon Park, the future site of Fire Station 6. Residents may see light smoke in the sky due to training activities throughout the day. Extra precautions have been taken to not interfere with normal day-to-day life for those living and working in the area. All residents living in the homes closest to the training have been notified by mail of the expected activity.
This training provides a realistic, safe, and fiscally responsible scenario to train GJFD recruits in the fire academy to learn about tactics for fighting structure fires.
If you have any questions about this training contact the Community Outreach Office at (970)549-5858 or by e-mail at GJfirePIO@gjcity.org.
