The mission of the Regional Public Safety Training Center is to provide training resources and high quality educational programs that offer partnering agencies and the community the most cost-effective way to develop their public safety personnel.
The Regional Public Safety Training Center (RPSTC), located on 124 acres in Reno, NV is an $18 million multi-use training facility which is owned by Washoe County. The Center operates under an Inter-local Agreement between Washoe County, and the Cities of Reno and Sparks. This agreement allows for equitable participation in the administration and management of this state-of-the-art facility.
Opened in 2002, the facility was envisioned to provide an exceptional training and learning environment for first responders as well as a cost savings to taxpayers. The RPSTC has high capacity fiber optic networks, wireless access points, state-of-the-art classrooms, a seven-story burn tower, off-road and paved emergency vehicle operations courses, shooting ranges with computerized target systems, props for hazardous materials and technical rescue training, and a functional chemistry lab.
