I founded and run the First Responder Training Center at Geauga Lake. It was established to provide local First Responders a secure and safe environment for training. What was once Wildwater Kingdom, SeaWorld and Geauga Lake is now available for SWAT, police, fire, K9, search and rescue, and drone training. A large array of buildings and areas have been dedicated for training. Use of the site is free of charge to all governmental entities and approved non-profit organizations.
I currently have a Boy Scout working on his Eagle Scout badge creating fire department training props. He will be constructing a VES Window Prop, a Denver Drill prop and an entrapment prop. He is working with a number of the local fire departments to determine their wants and needs.
I am always looking for new ideas for training props and scenarios. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or comments.
