On Thursday, Nov. 20, between the hours of 6 and and 11 p.m., SCC’s Public Safety Training Center in conjunction with Franklin Fire Department and other local Fire Departments will be conducting a training exercise at 11 First Street. This exercise will allow local fire departments an opportunity to train in realistic firefighting scenarios. This exercise will culminate in the demolition of a structure by fire.
During this training evolution flames and smoke will be visible and at times prevalent in the area of Downtown Franklin, around East Franklin School and the Highlands Road.
Also fire apparatus and other emergency service vehicles will be utilizing these roads as part of the training drill so minor traffic delays are possible.
