Boise Fire Chief Doan presents CCDC Commissioner Hale with Plaque of Appreciation

On September 14, Boise City Fire Chief Dennis Doan presented a plaque of appreciation to CCDC Board Commissioner John Hale for use of a CCDC owned warehouse. The warehouse, previously located at 620 S. 9th street, was used for almost 10 years by the Boise Fire Department for training. Chief Doan stated during his speech, “The gift [CCDC] gave us, I don’t know if we can even put a price tag to it… Because of all the fire fighter training that we’ve had there, we’ve been able to save property and lives.”

For the last 10 years the Boise Fire Department has had no permanent training facility and Chief Doan estimated that nearly 50,000 hours of staff time was spent in the CCDC location. This is going to change, however, as Mayor Bieter and City Council have passed a bond to build a permanent training facility.

The warehouse at 620 S 9th street was torn down in July to be redeveloped into housing by RMH Development. CCDC is in the process of conveying ownership to this Boise-based firm that plans to build approximately 65 residential condominiums.
