Lino Lakes Public Safety Director John Swenson shares some details about the city's newest fire station. "We relied on CNH pretty significantly for incorporating some firefighter training elements in our new facility."
A water supply inside allows for pump training indoors during the winter months with exhaust capabilities for vehicle emissions. The training room serves as a classroom, and also serves as a backup emergency operations center, giving some redundancy in case of a natural disaster. Technology is throughout.
With a paid on call response model, an important element is a gathering space like this facility uses.
It was what we had planned for and built with quality materials and quality craftsmanship, the director said.
