The facilities also are to be used by Chillicothe police and be available to area departments.

Bids are expected to be sought in early June with construction completed by this fall.

The estimated cost is around $400,000 with approximately $240,000 coming from a
1/4% fire tax approved by Chillicothe voters in 2003. 3 foundations are contributing $50,000 each. They are the Mervin Jenkins and Jerry Litton family foundations, and the Joe and Lenore Lambert foundations.

Each foundation has pledged five thousand dollars towards the cost of the training tower project, which is estimated to be around 400-thousand dollars. Bids are expected to be sought in early june with construction completed by this fall.

Approximately 240-thousand dollars of the cost is to be provided from a one-quarter of a percent fire tax approved by Chillicothe voters in 2003. The City of Chillicothe is providing ten-thousand dollars. Chillicothe Municipal Utilities is supplying the land and in-kind donations totaling 20-thousand.

The Chillicothe Street Department is to do concrete work for the project.

The 3,840 square foot training facility is to be built at 1301 Green Street. It's to provide training for live burn situations, rope rescue, well rescue, forcible entry, search and rescue, and ladder practice. There are 5 levels. The training tower allows various
aspects of firefighting to be taught, including blazes in basements and on decks, navigation up and down stairways, and roof ventilation, among others.

The fire training facility was among the projects on a list of upgrades presented to voters in 2003 when the fire tax was passed. They also included fire equipment upgrades, a replacement program for fire hose, firefighting equipment, personnel safety equipment, and advanced fire training.
