Surrey building $4.4M Fire Service Training Centre

New facility will replace existing 1976 building on same property

Surrey Fire Service is getting a new training centre.

The 12,000-square-foot facility will replace the existing 1976 wood frame training building, according to a city report, and will also provide multi-function classrooms, simulation spaces, offices and meeting facilities.

It will be built on the same property as the current Surrey Fire Services Central Training Facility, at 14923 64th Ave., directly adjacent to fire hall nine and the department’s mechanics shop.

Deputy Fire Chief John Lehmann said the new facility will have four classrooms (two 60-person rooms and two 30-person rooms), six offices for training officers and instructors, as well as storage and support rooms.

The site will also have “state of the art, modern classrooms including one classroom that opens up to the training ground through roll-up doors,” he said.

Lehmann noted it will “complement the existing 40 seat classroom, live fire (propane) burn building and Special Operations training props.”

Last month, the City of Surrey awarded a nearly $4.4 million contract to KDS Construction Ltd. to build the new facility.

It is expected to open in the fall of 2018.
