F.I.E.R.O. Fire Station Design Award Winner
Chester County (PA) Public Safety Tactical Training Village
ARCHITECT: Manns Woodward Studios in association with Stewart-Cooper-Newell
This F.I.E.R.O. Honor Award Winner is not a fire station. Instead, it is one of the coolest fire training academy layouts and building configurations you will ever see. The Chester County (PA) Public Safety Tactical Training Village was designed by Manns Woodward Studios in association with Stewart-Cooper-Newell. What makes the “village” so special is the arrangement of various fire (and police) training “buildings” and props into a compact village that mimics the layout of towns in the area. Not only does it create degrees of difficulty in meeting tactical objectives, it allows the setup of various training scenarios in only four acres. Training takes place from the confines of a “real” street, not from a huge asphalt area in front of an isolated training tower. Photo courtesy of F.I.E.R.O.
