Training Academy Facility
The Public Safety Training Academy was constructed in the early 1970's to serve the training needs of all County Public Safety Agencies, including the Fire and Rescue Service and the Montgomery County Department of Police. The facility is one of the most active public safety training facilities in the region. In 2007 the Multi-Agency Driver Training Facilty was completed. This new building is used by Fire/Rescue, County Police and Ride-On.
