CAL FIRE to Conduct Live Fire Training in Yucaipa with CAL FIRE Firefighter Academy
Yucaipa – “The only Legacy we leave, are the ones we Train.” April 14th & 15th, 2018, firefighters from CAL FIRE San Bernardino Unit will be conducting live fire training at the former Rosie’s Restaurant in Yucaipa, California. This live fire training will provide essential exposure to real fire conditions for CAL FIRE’s Firefighter Academy. Most Fire Academies only see fire conditions at a training facility in which real life fire conditions can be difficult to mimic. This type of training is paramount in gaining experience under live fire in an acquired structure.
Three structures were donated by the Yucaipa Calimesa Joint Unified School District (YCJUSD) for training purposes. To date over 600 firefighters and students from multiple fire agencies surrounding the Inland Valley as well Yucaipa High Schools Law and Public Safety Academy and Crafton Hills Fire Academy have been trained over the last 4 months.
Burning to be held 9:00am-3:00pm, daily at 33076 Yucaipa Blvd. Yucaipa, CA.
