On Monday, June 22nd from 8 am to 5 pm the University Place Fire Department will conduct a training burn at 2509 Grandview Drive West.
Mayer Built Homes, who purchased the property for future commercial development, donated the structure to the University Place Fire Department for training purposes. Over the past few weeks University Place Firefighters have used the structure for extensive firefighter rescue, search and survival drills. Training will conclude with a live fire exercise on Monday.
Fire crews will practice firefighting tactics as well as on scene management skills during this day long exercise. Due to location and safety concerns there will not be a public viewing area for this exercise.
