Kilgore College Fire Academy (TX) to Demonstrate New Equipment

The Fire Academy at Kilgore College (TX) will demonstrate new training equipment and a liquid petroleum gas tank at 9 a.m. Tuesday during a live fire training demonstration at the academy’s training grounds.

Mike Fennell, lead fire academy instructor, said the new equipment is a liquid petroleum gas prop that will help teach fire students about ignitable liquid pits and how to control them in a safe manner.

“We are the first fire academy in this part of the state to have one of these,” Fennell said. “It can also be used for car fires, Dumpster fires and fire extinguisher training.”
