Is your home or building scheduled for demolition?

Consider donating it to the Seattle Fire Department for training.

The Seattle Fire Department is always training to ensure the safety of both the community that we serve and our own members. We accept suitable buildings to use for “destructive training”. This provides our firefighters with a real building to practice skills and tactics, and represents an important part of maintaining their readiness.

WHAT IS DESTRUCTIVE TRAINING?
May include cutting holes in the roof and walls, breaking down doors and windows, searching for simulated victi…ms, deploying fire hoses, flowing water and live fire.

WHAT BUILDINGS ARE USED FOR TRAINING?
Building owners can donate their building to the Seattle Fire Department once a structure has passed its usable life span and is scheduled to be demolished. *

HOW DO I FIND OUT IF MY BUILDING QUALIFIES?
The building must be in Seattle City limits, not be structurally compromised (fire damage, rot, collapse) and not have unmitigated biohazard waste (feces, needles, rodent infestation). *

*There are some disqualifiers
