The advanced structural collapse training facility sits next to our largest Rubble Pile and is designed to resemble a facility where an explosion brought down a large concrete building, and also destroyed a three-story Government Complex and parking garage.

This training prop draws from many of the world’s largest disasters, such as the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, the Pentagon and the Mexico City earthquake, to create a premier training structure:

  • A replaceable 100-square-foot hanging slab can be core-drilled and cabled, diapered or breached.
  • Collapsed floors with breach panels are hung at 15, 30 and 45 degrees and provide opportunities to build sloped floor shores in different configurations.
  • Two large shattered columns permit training with heavy-duty cribbing.
  • Second facility allows tie-backs in different configurations.
  • Second story breach panels permit advanced breaching techniques.
  • Cat-walks allow advanced rope work.

The Government Complex will be utilized during Advanced Structural Collapse courses as well as for the urban search and rescue full-scale exercise program.

It is a one stop shop for us. I like the freedom of adding things that are important to us (advertising new and big events). It is easy to use as an administrator. When visiting EMI or other states, and I log in, I always get comments on the content and details of the site.
