The 2017 Fire School was again a huge success. A full weekend of about 100 dedicated instructors and firefighters committed to enhancing their skills.  This was the 16th Annual School with the host station being the recently constructed Station #11 in South Haldimand.   Firefighters were involved in training sessions of Auto Extrication, (pictures below) to fine tune skills.  Thanks to community partners like Rush's automotive for their part in providing vehicles for our training. Continual training is an important part of keeping skills sharp.

2017 was welcomed with 13 new Haldimand County Fire Recruits.  One of the largest classes that the fire department has seen.  After 5 months of on-going training, the Fire School is where all of their skills are put to the test with practical scenarios. This group showed enthusiasm with all they accomplished over the weekend.   As well as  some of our more senior firefighters participating in the Pumper Operations Course that is offered annually.
