Harrisonville : CCC opens new training tower

Harrisonville : CCC opens new training tower

Cass Career Center has added a new training resource for its CCC Fire Science Program.

A new fire training tower has been built next to the Harrisonville school. The tower will be used for hose and ladder drills, team building, search and rescue drills, and live burn testing.

The fire training tower was built by Custom Container Living LLC in Archie which constructed a similar tower for the Dolan-West Fire Department.

The funding for the Harrisonville fire training tower came from the state’s CTE (Career and Technical Education) Performance Grant. The state education department supported the need for the project and gave special permission for use of the grant monies by CCC. There were also two local companies, Elliott Construction of Pleasant Hill and Reasoner Grading of Creighton, who donated time and effort at no cost to the school.

The Harrisonville Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting at the new facility on Friday, March 13 at 8 a.m.
