Even with the state of the art Burn Tower about 100 feet away, it is imperative for firefighters to get real live-burn training with materials that create real, hot and black smoke.  Rather than soot up the Burn Tower and limit its use for other public safety agencies, the Burn Box was created specifically for firefighter training.  Fire Trainers can create different fire animals and direct the flames and smoke by opening different ventilation points so that new and veteran firefighters alike get real world experience before they need it.
