Public Safety Training Center
Southwestern College, San Diego, CA
The Public Safety Training Center expands on the existing programs for Fire Science, Police Academy, and Emergency Medical Technician. The new training facility includes 6 vehicle bays for apparatus storage, new classrooms and specialized training rooms, a police scenario training apartment, and a live-burn fire training simulator.
The site is organized such that the existing pedestrian circulation of the campus continues naturally to the new facility while maintaining separation between pedestrians, and vehicles in operation. The separate safety programs are also located to avoid crossing over each other to facilitate active training.
