MOREHEAD, (April 21, 2016) – The Kentucky Fire Commission will host a ribbon cutting and open house on Thursday, April 28, at 11:30 a.m. at its new location at 99 Lake Drive.

The new 30,000 square foot building is home to the Kentucky Fire Commission/State Fire and Rescue Training Center, which serves 11 counties. It is within walking distance of the planned Maysville Community and Technical College Rowan Campus creating better access for students who also will train at the new KFC building. The building has classroom and office space along with an area where the mobile fleet is housed.

Special guests will be Morehead Mayor Jim Tom Trent, Rowan County Judge Executive Walter (Doc) Blevins and Rocky Adkins, Kentucky House Majority Floor Leader.

About the Kentucky Fire Commission
Since 1972 the mission of the Kentucky Fire Commission and the State Fire Rescue Training agencies has been to train and certify volunteer and career firefighters of Kentucky. In 1997 the Postsecondary Education Improvement Act was mandated bringing about the approval of an associate in applied science (AAS) degree in fire/rescue science technology. At that time the Kentucky Fire Commission was established within the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
