The Escondido Fire Department will conduct live fire training in vacant single family houses located on the corner of El Norte Parkway and Broadway on December 3 and 4 between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.   

Live fire training exercises are an invaluable tool for firefighters to practice skills and techniques in controlled fire conditions.  Smoke is a by-product of this training and will be present during the drill sessions in the area of the training.

Community Housing Works has made the vacant buildings available to the Fire Department for live fire training prior to being demolished.
