Lompoc's massive new Public Safety Training Complex is opening to the public on Saturday, August 2.
The 68 acre facility is part of Allan Hancock College and cost 38-million to build.
It will serve as a training location for fire fighters, law enforcement, medical teams, hazmat crews—even lifeguards. It's also designed to accommodate training related to homeland security and disaster response.
Highlights of the complex include a firing range, a 1.3 mile high speed track, and a six-story training tower with multiple fire props.
This weekend's public grand opening runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and will include a guided bus tour and live demonstrations.
