CCCC began offering fire fighter training classes in 1964. In 2001, the Emergency Services Training Center was established at the former Sanford/Lee County Airport site in Sanford, providing greatly expanded facilities for training.
Since then, a new classroom building, a burn building, a rescue training tower, and other facilities have been added at the site. The Fire Academy opened in January 2010.
