As written about in a past blog, Pac-Van has been working with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department in Fort Wayne Indiana to build tactical training structures for its regional training facility. Pac-Van’s Indianapolis branch has constructed a total of three structures all built using custom storage containers.

Our last blog highlighted the Residential Emergency Training Facility and the Bank/Retail Shoot House/Training Facility. Pac-Van has now completed a two-story training facility.

Custom Elite Residential Emergency Tactical Training Center

This training facility is a two-story structure set up as a mock residential space. Made-up of two modified 20’ and three 40 foot storage containers, it has a total of 1,360 square feet of training space. This structure features three bedrooms with closets, a kitchen, bathrooms, living room, dining room, and a garage. It was built with an internal staircase, an outdoor second-story balcony, windows, and interior and exterior doors. This training facility will be used in hostage simulations training, providing the departments with a safe and realistic place to train.
