During the dedication ceremony then Chief James Sullivan reread a letter dated January 1969. It recalled Captain Villanova’s constant work ethic, ‘he has done an outstanding job as the training officer for the Pittsfield Fire Department and Berkshire County. His ability to communicate to his pupils, his command of the subject being taught and the enthusiasm, that he displays while teaching, is most refreshing. A beneficial side-effect has been his ability to command the respect and friendship of his pupils.’

 

The Training Center is also home of the Pittsfield Fire Department's Firefighter Combat Challenge Team. They are the current MA State Champions and MA State record holders in the open male, relay, and team categories.
