Ohio Twp. fire department hopeful for new training facility

NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) -

A Warrick County volunteer fire department wants to expand its training facility.

Ohio Township crews are looking to build behind the existing building on Old Plank Road.

Phase One of the project includes clearing trees and laying gravel to make way for the new facility.  

They have one large "hot box" right now.

It is similar to a large shipping container.

The "hot box" is a way for fire crews to acclimate to the intense heat.  

Imran Awan believes the training tool will make the fire department stronger.
