Pensacola Fire Department Highlights New Training Simulator, Elevated ISO Rating
Pensacola Fire Department demonstrated a new Maritime Fire Training Simulator at Fire Station 4 during Mayor Grover Robinson's weekly press conference today, Monday, March 28. This is the only maritime live fire trainer in the region, and it will be used for a variety of firefighter trainings for both Pensacola Fire Department and other fire departments throughout the area.
Mayor Robinson and Pensacola Fire Chief Ginny Cranor also highlighted PFD's ISO rating moving up to an ISO Class 1, which is the highest score in a 1-10 range.
