The Ontario Oregon Regional Training Facility held its grand opening on Saturday, June 18. The event showed off fire apparatus, a live firefighting demonstration with a prop car, plus freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs.
The facility in downtown Ontario was developed by the Ontario Fire Department in partnership with fire agencies in the region, including in Idaho. The training center makes it easier to provide training for firefighters but police agencies are also expected to use the buildings and structures.
It will be used by first responders throughout the region.
