The department's training facility is located at 3003 West Oak Street. The Jessie Combs Training Center is a state-of-the-art building that houses a classroom and various breakout venues for instruction. The 6,500-square-foot center was constructed in 1997, named after former Deputy Fire Chief Jessie Combs, a long-standing and well-respected member of the department.
The building and training grounds are used almost daily for various fire department activities. The architect for the building is Don Spann, and the contractor is Milestone Construction.
Besides being used by RFD, the training center is used by community groups and the Northwest Arkansas Community College's Fire Science Program. In 2010, the training center under went an extensive remodel to bring the facility up to date, and to better meet the needs of the Rogers Fire Department.
