The San Bernardino Regional Emergency Training Center (SBRETC) in San Bernardino, California, is a state-of-art Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF) training facility that offers programs designed to expose students to real life training exercises.
Morrison-Maierle began work on the propane equipment acquisition, site layout study and concept design in 2000. The Master Plan Study conducted for the San Bernardino Regional Emergency Training Services Center included a propane fueled spill fire trainer, propane fueled specialized aircraft fires trainer, and a 25,000 square foot training and administration building.
The building is a two story building with classrooms, offices, locker rooms, equipment rooms, and attached vehicle storage bays for ARFF trucks and other training equipment. The truck bays will also serve as the maintenance shop for the Training Center. The administration building’s second level includes a control tower used as the computer command center and observation site for live-burn training exercises. The center is designed to facilitate aircraft fire training, runway incursion, command/control and aircraft crash victim evacuation curriculum. The San Bernardino Regional Emergency Training Center began operations and training in 2006.
