The author reflects on how to address the problems in conducting a live-fire training. The author said that fire departments do not have the funds to replace live-fire training simulators. According to the author, it is time for a national effort to compile a complete database of live-fire training simulators and establish a list of geotechnical scientific and thermal-structure engineers who can conduct structural surveys of live-fire training facilities.
