KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - A new partnership between Klamath Community College and Oregon State University paves way for the institutions to offer structure and wildland firefighter education at a new training facility.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/baHTzd ) an agreement signed off on Wednesday allows the schools to partner with other agencies to offer the training at Klamath Basin Public Safety Fire Training Center, which will be located on existing campus property in Klamath Falls.

KCC President Roberto Gutierrez says the newly established center will provide schooling and experience for jobs in wildland and structure firefighting as well as emergency medical services and rescue response.

Daniel Leavell, who has 40 years of experience in emergency management and natural resources, will be the center’s director.
