New safety training facility is unsafe

Remember the brand new safety training facility Cape Fear Community College unveiled last fall?

Well, the ten million dollar training center for New Hanover County fire fighters and first responders has not actually been used. That is because it was not built properly.

The contractor did not use waterproof concrete block for the walls like he was supposed to, which is a big problem since firefighters douse the walls with water during training.

A CFCC spokesperson said the contractor has agreed to replace the concrete blocks at no cost to the college, but it could be up to a year before that is finished, and the facility can be used for training.
