Stretched across 15-acres, the IAFF Center of Excellence is designed with the firehouse in mind. The treatment experience is spread across seven buildings, with areas designated for therapy, meals and living. IAFF members stay in one of four station houses, each fitted with comfortable furnishings designed to mirror familiar firehouse spaces. To strengthen camaraderie and build a network of support, clients are housed together based on their shared treatment needs. Walking trails set against looming evergreens round out the campus and set the stage for the renewing process of recovery.
