With all do respect Why can't Westfield build a training center instead of burning down our beautiful old buildings and history? I get that WFD needs to have training but we could use IFD's or another nearby training center. 😥 A training center would actually benefit WFD for High Rise buildings since Riverview Hospital is now in Westfield.

Please don't burn the building down. It's just not right and it's disturbing enough when a "real" fire burns a building or a home. Please find a different way to train.

I understand that some may have emotional attachments to certain buildings, but if a building is getting demolished anyways, why not have them train in the building first? The more real the training, the better they will be when lives are at stake.

If y’all wanna snatch that beautiful sign off the front, I know a brewery that could put that to good use in town! Plus, I got my steam under control so I haven’t had to make you guys get up and come out for nothing! None the less, stay safe!
