NTC shows off Merrill Public Safety campus

April 25, 2013

From waow.com: “NTC ribbon cutting for Merrill Public Safety Campus” — A ribbon cutting took place in Merrill for the new Public Safety Campus. The project provides real-life experience for first responders.

It includes a village with storefronts and streets.

In a command center, there are monitors that keep track of remote control targets and play recorded sound effects, like a person screaming or a dog barking. NTC leaders say it aimed at making the training as realistic as possible.

Two years ago, the original campus was destroyed by a tornado that hit Merrill. At the time, North Central Technical College was in the process of revamping the campus. The tornado gave school leaders an opportunity to make the campus much larger.

The two million dollar project is the result of insurance payments on the original facility, as well as community donations and money from the NTC Foundation.
