Acquired Structures

Firefighter training takes place after several parties collaborate and acquire structures for the trainings to take place in. When buildings inside City limits are about to be demolished, the Fire Marshal will make note of this, notify the Training Officer and try to acquire the structure for training purposes. Most of these trainings are “dry,” which means that there are no actual fires being lit at the time of training. Before a structure can be burnt down for training purposes, there is a long list of specifications from the state that the City must comply with.

We Thank You


The City of Longwood and the Fire Department would like to thank those who have allowed the department to use their locations as acquired structures for training purposes. In doing this you have helped make our community a safer place.
