REDDING, Calif. - Shasta College is celebrating the addition of two new structures to help with fire training.
The college unveiled the training towers in a public ceremony on campus Thursday morning.
The specialized fire training towers will allow trainees to learn new skills.
The construction of the towers was made possible through support from the community.
"Through the passage of Measure H, we have the funding to do this and confidence of the community to do that vote and we are excited to have our first major project completed," said Joe Wyse, president of Shasta College.
Measure H gave the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District the ability to secure $139 million in general obligation bond funding to focus on public safety.
