After ten years in business, Permian Basin Regional Training Center (PBRTC) has decided to close our doors. We cannot adequately express our sincere gratitude for your business and support. Working with you has been nothing but an absolute pleasure.
The formation of the PBRTC was after a tragic event that claimed twelve family members on the morning of August 19, 2000, after a natural gas pipeline explosion south of Carlsbad. Ms. Martha Chapman (Nana), related by blood and marriage to all twelve victims, spearheaded the contribution of a 10 million dollar endowment to the Carlsbad Community Foundation (The Foundation), in memory of the family. Another 2 million dollars came from the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant Federal Education Funds. Together they created the PBRTC. The mission of the PBRTC from the beginning was to provide training to the region’s public safety, both paid and volunteer, personnel.
Since opening PBRTC has provided training to hundreds of Fire, EMS, and Law enforcement, as well as providing classroom facilities to area businesses. In July 2015, the property and training grounds was transferred over to Eddy County Fire Services (ECFS). ECFS will continue with the PBRTC’s original mission of training the region’s First Responders.
Our last day of business will be December 31, 2017. Until that date, we will continue to provide training and classrooms. All class schedule through the end of December will continue.
Please contact us with any questions or comments. Our commitment to providing you the best service and support is still our top priority. Thank you again for your business.
Mike Buldra, Executive Director
