Rockford Firefighter Training Academy Gets Makeover


The Rockford Firefighter Training Academy is getting a much needed facelift.

Honeywell partnered with Rebuild Together Muscatine to improve and upgrade the facility.  The training academy trains not only Rockford Firefighters, but firefighters from all across northern Illinois.  With all the wear and tear the academy has received over the years, there’s a lot that needs to be upgraded.

“This is a training center for firemen,” said Honeywell GM Tim Lee.  “They don’t have the time to do these things.  We’re building a shade shelter for them.  We’re repainting the building, doing some landscape work.  We’re repainting the locker room.  We’re working on some of the other equipment.”

Rockford Firefighters say they’re happy to have the help and to see so many volunteers.
