The new EMS Complex at Northern College officially opens today.

This is a new training facility for the school’s emergency services courses including police, paramedic and firefighting. The school says the building is also home to the Whitney Fire Hall, and other working professional so students can interact with and see how the professionals work.

The building has classrooms set up like jail cells, courtrooms and vehicle bays. The school says there are also simulators that the students will be using for different emergency situation practices.

This project cost about $20-million dollars and construction started in July 2017.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place today 1:00pm. There will also be a welcome lunch and tours of the facility. The MyTimminsNow.Com Newsroom will have updates on the event later on.
