To be a firefighter, you literally have to know what you’re getting into. That’s where SPC’s cutting-edge Fire and Public Safety Training Center comes in.
Designed to simulate real-life emergencies, the training center is one of the most advanced in the state. All of the training begins with this most critical concept: keeping firefighters safe. Our training center is a state credentialed and we teach classes that are approved by the Florida State Fire College.

The center also has a forcible entry and ventilation building, which houses 42 different training opportunities and props. These include:
