The Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) Emergency Service Education Center is a 24,000-square-foot training facility for the college's fire, police, and emergency medical services programs. The facility was built in collaboration with the City of Eau Claire, which has its Fire Station #9 attached to the education center. The 10,000-square-foot fire station will meet the fire safety needs of Eau Claire's west side, and will also provide training opportunities for CVTC students.
Instructors and students from CVTC use one of the four bays in the fire station for training purposes. The CVTC facility also offers nine classrooms: two with interactive television and one designed for use in mock crime scenes.
Both the Emergency Service Education Center and the City's fire station are of structural steel frame construction. For aesthetic effect, some exterior walls are brick and block while others are insulated metal panels on structural steel studs.
