Preparing to save lives, property


At the podium, Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) speaks Thursday at his Clinton County hometown during a ceremony for a three-story burn tower to be built there for preparing and training firefighters. At the event, Rosenberger announced the newly signed state budget includes $150,000 for new training equipment to go along with the facility, which is targeted for completion in November, weather permitting. Partners in the project include Southern State Community College and Sinclair Community College in Dayton, which has a Fire Science Technology Department. Fire departments in multiple counties are expected to utilize the facility for new and current first responders. The burn tower at the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire & Rescue District Training Center was made possible through the Ohio Capital Budget. In the photograph’s background are part of the first-responder roster of the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District & EMS.

Groundbreaking was Thursday in Clarksville for a highly specialized burn tower designed for firefighters’ live burn training, rappelling, confined space rescue, roof penetration, high-angle rescues, rope rescues and other simulations of real-life emergencies. Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District & EMS Chief Bob Wysong said he thinks the facility and the training that will occur there will be “a big benefit” to the area.
