CITY HALL — Glendale firefighters’ training building may soon get a face-lift, making the hollowed-out concrete structure safer to use for live fires.
Glendale Fire Department officials are seeking the City Council’s approval today to transfer $150,000 from a renovation project for Station 29 to reconstructing the fire burn building, where firefighters and recruits fight flames in a controlled environment.
The fund transfer is not expected to affect rebuilding efforts at Fire Station 29, according to the report.
“It’s a critical structure for us,” Battalion Chief Greg Godfrey said of the training building. “It’s the only place where we can test recruits.”
