The public is invited to join the Round Rock Police and Fire Departments for an opportunity to explore the new Public Safety Training Center, located at 2801 N. Mays St., from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
The new state-of-the-art facility features training offices and classrooms, an indoor shooting range, training village with fire training props, five-story burn tower and driving skills course. Fire and Police personnel will give guided tours and participate in demonstrations, including car fires, fuel spills and SWAT and tactics training.
“Quality training is critical to our community,” City Manager Laurie Hadley said. “Providing the best possible training environment for our public safety officers is essential to keep up with the demands of our growing city and will control training costs long-term.”
City officials broke ground on the $29 million, 65,000-square-foot building in November 2016. The training facility was designed by Brinkley Sargent Wiginton Architects and constructed by CHASCO Constructors. Voters approved funding for the project during the 2013 bond election.
