Announcement from the CRA...

This Saturday (November 15th), the Palm Beach Fire Rescue Academy will be conducting a controlled burn of an abandoned residential structure in Lake Worth. The location of the event is 231 North ‘H’ Street. The event will begin at 8am and end at 6pm. Portions of Third Avenue North may be closed during the event. There is no need to call 911 regarding the burning of this structure.

The CRA and one of our NSP Consortium Affiliates (Palm Beach State College), have partnered to provide this abandoned structure to the Palm Beach County Fire Academy to conduct a controlled burn. This real life educational experience gives future fire fighters the life - safety skills needed to battle fires in residential structures. The CRA plans to build a brand new single family home at this location next year. This is another example of how NSP dollars are being used for career training and education in the community.
