City officials and firefighters broke ground Tuesday, May 6, 2014, for a $400,000 firefighting training tower in southwest Chillicothe. The facility will be constructed at 1301 Green Street on land provided by Chillicothe Municipal Utilities. Additional funding for the project is being made available by local foundations. The training facility will be 3,840 square-feet and will be shared with Grand River Technical School in an effort to enhance the current programs at the school and also bring in good young recruits to help the fire department maintain adequate staffing.

Chillicothe's newly-remodeled and expanded fire station was open for public viewing Saturday, March 30, 2012. Tours were given throughout the facility for around 150 people, and hot dogs and chips were served as part of the day's event. The expansion/remodeling project was completed in November, 2011, at a cost of just over $2.3 million.
