Rail Tankers and Auto Extrication Pad

This program area is expected to expand in the coming years. Rail cars are mounted on tracks and simulate what first responders are likely to encounter in various scenarios – particularly tank cars leaking hazardous materials.

This area is dedicated to vehicle and machinery rescue classes. Auto extrication classes are held in the fenced area and in the adjoining building.
