Training is an essential part of a firefighter’s day-to-day activities. It is imperative that our firefighters have the skills and experience to efficiently and effectively respond to the wide variety of emergencies that can occur in our community, using the most modern methods and equipment available.
The Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) Training Center offers a comprehensive training space for CCFR crews and other emergency response agencies throughout the St. Charles County region. The training center was designated as a regional training facility by the Missouri Division of Fire Safety.
The CCFR Training Center, located at 10100 Mid Rivers Mall Dr. in St. Peters, Missouri, features a live fire training tower to provide similar conditions to real-life fire calls. There, crews can practice their firefighting and rescue skills in the safety of a controlled environment.
The CCFR training tower features two levels of live fire burn rooms and a flashover simulator. The five-story structure can also be used to practice:
- Ladder operations
- Hose operations
- High-angle rescue
- Confined space operations
- Roof penetration
- Forceable entry
- Search and rescue
- Mayday & self-rescue techniques
In addition to the tower, our training center features a pavilion for instruction and a sizeable concrete space where non-tower training drills (such as vehicle extrication, hazardous materials drills, driver/operator drills, etc.) can be performed.
