One of the ways we stay sharp on the various skills of the job is constant training. Recently, several members of your own Monterey Firefighters who have experience in welding and metal fabrication, designed and brought to reality this training center. With this training aid, companies can practice ventilation (commercial and residential), search and rescue, hose movement, hose management, firefighter down drills, entrapment drills, and much more. This project represents thousands of hours by department members, all while still running calls and completing the normal daily tasks. The training center is located at fire station 16 at the Monterey Airport.
