Laurier Township, ON – With the recent closure of Ontario’s Fire College, and the Provincial Government’s plan to modernize firefighter training, many small and rural departments are finding new ways to promote fire safety and conduct training.

Thanks in part to a grant from Enbridge and local community doners, Chief Tim Holland has put together a proposal to help train local firefighters locally.  This proposal would not only help train Laurier firefighters, but would also be open for other nearby Northern Fire Protection Plan (NFPP) departments to use and train.

Split into two phases, phase one hopes to be completed by the end of August and will include training on variety of topics including but not limited to:

1.       Auto Extrication Pad (asphalt, painted like highway with guard rails and outdoor lighting)
2.       Burn Car
3.       Burn Tank
4.       Roof Prop
5.       Water Supply Tank as per NFPA 1402
Phase 2 would include advanced training such as SCBA maze searches, and two-story structure training.   For more information on this new training site, please contact Chief Hollands at
