Craig fire district officials host meeting tonight

Joe Moylan

The Craig Rural Fire Protection District Board will be discussing tonight its new plans to construct a live fire burn tower in Craig.

The discussion will take place during the fire district’s regularly scheduled monthly meeting, which takes place at 7 p.m. at the fire department, 419 Yampa Ave.

The meeting is open to the public.

Fire board members on Monday hosted a special meeting to approve a $470,529 purchase contract with WHP Trainingtowers, the manufacturer of the live fire training tower kit.

The facility, once slated to be constructed on Colorado Northwestern Community College property on the west side of Craig, will now be built on land owned by the fire district on Industrial Avenue behind Kmart.
