Training is an important part of the fire department and we train regularly to stay up to date on techniques and methods.

We have a full time training officer to ensure that training is conducted regularly and the subject matter is compliant with national standards.  We have a training facility located at station two and are able to simulate a variety of scenarios including live fire scenarios.

In addition to the training officer, we have certified instructors to assist in course delivery.  We also work with surrounding departments to prepare for large scale emergencies.

2022 Training and Professional Development Hours: 11,770
