Ingersoll Fire & Emergency Service personnel are challenged by a number of complex tasks. In order to mitigate these complex tasks the fire fighter’s undergo extensive training. All training is in accordance with the Ontario Firefighter Curriculum, with most of the training provided at our facility. Additional training is received through the Ontario Fire College and outside agencies.
The addition of the training complex has greatly enhanced the quality of training. This allows for a more hands on approach to our training. The complex consists of a 9.14m (30’) training tower, confined space tunnels and a search and rescue building.
An efficient, effective fire service must have thorough and ongoing training for all its members. At any time, personnel may have to handle a variety of emergency situations. That spells out the need for widely varied training scenarios including; vehicle extrication, hazardous materials, defibrillator operations, CPR, first aid, technical rescue and command procedures, as well as the latest firefighting techniques.
