The Durango Fire Protection District’s new state-of-the-art training tower will provide emergency responders throughout the Four Corners with more realistic experiences fighting fires or conducting rescue operations. And someday that experience could save a life. You’re watching the Local News Network brought to you by Serious Texas Bar-B-Q and Fast Signs of Durango. I’m Wendy Graham Settle. Durango Fire unveiled its $2.5 million training tower in Bodo Park during dedication ceremonies in August that included a ribbon cutting, demonstrations and a barbecue. It replaces the tower at River City Hall, which Chief Hal Doughty said was outdated and could not be used with real fires because of its hollow cinder block construction. The new four-story tower is rigged with propane-fueled spigots that can be lit to mimic an actual fire and props can be arranged throughout the building to simulate an office, bedroom, living room, or kitchen.
