New public safety tower helps train firefighters
Golder Ranch firefighter Matt Gordon begins his rappel down the fire district’s new training facility. The new three-story building will help train firefighters in Northwest Tucson rather than forcing them go to travel to the Tucson Fire Department’s training facility near Interstate 10 and Wilmot road.
