RCC’s Burn Building Groundbreaking
On Wednesday, September 18, Robeson Community College broke ground on our Burn Building located at the Emergency Services Training Center, at 5825 Highway 72 East Lumberton NC 28358.
The new Burn Building will accommodate the demand for class and practical training it is imperative to simulate real-life scenarios for students. Students will be able to train under Class A and Class B conditions, thus providing them with the most realistic fire training feasible. State of the art props will be incorporated throughout the structures to further challenge and provide realistic training scenarios.
The current Burn Building is over 20 years old and presents some safety concerns. The new Burn Building will be designed to withstand extreme conditions utilizing specialized building materials and design mechanisms to either consolidate or distribute heat as desired. Design standards are set for a minimum of 20 years of service life. Additionally, it will also accommodate EMS and Law Enforcement training.
