About the PSTC

Located adjacent to Appleton International Airport in Appleton, Wisconsin, the Center combines classroom training with hands-on practice in a real-world setting. The PSTC is used to train tactics, investigation, fire fighting, technical rescue, pursuit, air disasters, and much more. No other fully integrated training facility exists in the Midwest and only a handful of other facilities meet even a portion of the combined training needs that this facility offers.
