Howell-based Operating Engineers 324 Education Center features a structural collapse recovery training program and curriculum based on FEMA standards. The instructional facility is a 515-acre site designed to accommodate training opportunities for building and trench collapses, search and rescue dogs, uniformed emergency workers, emergency and heavy equipment operation, and disaster simulations. Use of the facility was recently donated to the FBI, state and local police for “post-blast” car bombing training. Students were required to process the scenes from real-life scenarios intentionally set up by experts.
