Illinois Fire Service Institute



The four-story tower is one of the original fire fighting training structures on the campus. Originally constructed in the 1960s with open walls, the prop can now accommodate burns on its second through sixth floors. The internal standpipe system allows for high rise scenarios that challenge firefighters to use high-rise packs instead of pre-connected hand lines. The first level bays also serves as a home to IFSI's reserve engines and the Institute's fixed SCBA fill stations and compressors.
