An IDHS District 6 Training Site
to the Henry County Emergency Services Training
Center, “Search City” will allow police, fire and EMS responders a place to train in a community setting.
From searching for lost children or radiological sources to tactical SWAT
operations, the structures will be set up to represent main street USA with stores
and vehicles. We intend to build a few structures that will be reconfigurable
for special operations.
will be built utilizing structures constructed from semi-trailers, truck boxes
and wood frame structures. With sidewalks, street lights, stop lights and even
a RXR crossing, we intend to have a place to teach children bicycle safety and
even moving around parked cars.
the North West
corner of the training facility, the city will occupy 44000 square feet or just
over 1 acre. The plan is to build structures along the fence and then build the
center of town. With roadway access through town responders will be able to respond
in emergency vehicles for realistic training. A static roadway will allow the
placement of fixed training assets such as a tractor-trailer, commercial bus
plus additional vehicles. A future planned improvement will include observation
towers as funding permits.
Search City will be the
premier hands on training option in eastern Indiana.
allowing businesses the opportunity to place a store front on site with
advertising for the price of building it. This provides us with additional
resources for construction and businesses a place to advertise and let
responders know they support them. The average cost of a structure depends on
the price of the container/trailer plus door, window and paint.
