Twin Falls Fire Training Facility

As an integral component of the department’s strategic master planning, the City of Twin Falls has identified the need to prioritize the establishment of a district training facility. This facility is designed to train personnel, ensuring they can effectively respond to both existing and prospective hazards. The selection of the site is strategic, offering a versatile venue not only for regional fire and emergency medical services (EMS) departments but also for college training programs and various other agencies.


In collaboration with Rice Fergus Miller, our design teams worked closely with the Twin Falls Fire Department and training committee to identify appropriate training opportunities and props. The program our teams developed addresses training for both typical and unique hazards, as well as the integration of props for scenario drills.


This multi-phase project will feature a state-of-the-art practice tower, a two-bay apparatus storage, classrooms, locker rooms, a conference room, kitchenette, and storage spaces strategically positioned adjacent to the hands-on training tower. Firefighters will have the capability to review standard operating field procedures in a well-equipped classroom and conference room, followed by gearing up and immediately practicing the reviewed protocols in a field simulation. To emulate the safety techniques of a typical fire station, the classroom component of this project maintains a clear separation of space, prioritizing the safety and health of the staff.
