About Fire Con

For the past 30 years, Emergency North Training (ENT), has developed critical regional training courses and programs for firefighters and emergency first responders for municipalities, unincorporated territories, and First Nations in northwestern Ontario. The main training forum held each September is known as FireCon.
 
Municipal budgets in the north continue to be under significant pressure to reduce costs and spending. With that said, the courses offered at FireCon, on a per-student basis, is the best opportunity for your first responders to receive affordable training at a recognized standard.  As such, ENT prides itself in delivering affordable, accessible, and attainable training programs and courses. Courses offered at FireCon adhere to the standards of Ontario's Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM), Emergency Management (EM), and the Ministry of Labour. 

By collaborating and partnering with the OFM, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs, and corporate sponsors, we can ensure that our objective of providing regional emergency training, in particular, the staging of FireCon event, remains possible.
 
But FireCon is more than just training, FireCon hosts a professional trade show where attendees receive information from company experts on new equipment, technologies, and services. On Saturday evening, we host our annual banquet where attendees enjoy a delicious meal and entertainment and have the opportunity to network with their friends in the fire service.

FireCon Virtual 2022 Registration Information Coming Soon

Emergency North Training (ENT) is an incorporated, non-profit organization whose mission is to offer valuable training at an affordable price. The ENT Board of Directors recognizes that municipalities in northwestern Ontario are consistently under funding pressures and have committed to re-investing any profits made from the event into the program for the following year.

About Emergency North Training

Emergency North Training (ENT) Inc. is a not-for-profit, incorporated entity with the objective of delivering educational programs and services for members of the public and persons who respond to emergencies in northwestern Ontario. For the past 30 years, ENT, staffed with volunteers, has offered critical regional training for firefighters and emergency first responders for municipalities, unincorporated territories, and First Nations.  The main training forum, held each September, is known as FireCon.
 
ENT recognizes that municipal budgets in northwestern Ontario are under significant pressure to reduce costs and spending. With that said, the training offered at FireCon, on a per-student basis, is the best opportunity for first responders to receive affordable training to a recognized standard. Training delivered at FireCon is up to standards acceptable to Ontario's Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM), and Ministry of Labour.
 
Without the collaboration and partnership with the OFMEM, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs, and our corporate sponsors, Emergency North Training and FireCon would not be possible.
 
Our training packages include lunch, continental breakfast, refreshments, and access to our Trade Show - where attendees have the opportunity to see the latest technology and products available today in the fire service. On Saturday evening, attendees gather at our annual banquet, which provides an opportunity to network with peers, have a delicious meal and enjoy some light entertainment.
 
Emergency North Training considers it a privilege to be a service to our membership and the Ontario fire service.  We pride ourselves in delivering training that is affordable, accessible, and attainable. FireCon offers a great place to network, exchange ideas, and knowledge, meet new people and hear news from afar.
 
It is the rendezvous for the fire and emergency service in northwestern Ontario!
