For Immediate Release
Fairfax, VA | 04.16.2019

Ceremony marked construction completion on new facility in Gilbert Park.

The new 11-acre fire rescue training facility at Gilbert Park in Osceola County, Florida, officially opened following a ribbon-cutting ceremony in early March 2019.

Dewberry provided site/civil engineering, architectural, and environmental services for the $5.8-million project.

The facility has been designed to simulate a variety of training exercises, such as aerial apparatus operations and truck company functions; and various rescue operations, including vehicle and machinery, high angle rope, trench, confined space, and building collapse.

Phase one covered all site development and infrastructure, including sanitary sewer service, water systems for both water use and fire demand, stormwater management systems, entry and exit driveways and parking, and a concrete pad for the fire apparatus training course. There is structurally reinforced concrete pavement throughout to accommodate the fire apparatus competency course and multiple access drives to the training area.

“This state-of-the-art facility will provide numerous types of emergency personnel the opportunity to train for a wide array of life-threatening situations,” says Dewberry Project Manager and Associate Vice President Rey Malave, PE.
