The 2016 Fire School was again a huge success. A full weekend of about 120 dedicated instructors and firefighters committed to enhancing their skills.  This was the 15th Annual School with the host station being the recently constructed Station #2 in Hagersville.

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.

2016 was welcomed with 27 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.

 All firefighters need proper instruction and training on how to use the Pumper vehicles to ensure the proper flow of water. Many fire fighters took advantage of increasing their knowledge level by taking this course.

With the increased amount of medical calls that the Fire Department responds to, the Patient Care course offered at Fire School is always well received.  Keeping up on patient care procedures provides the Haldimand County fire fighters the ability to provide a high level of care to those in need.

The last course offered at Fire School is Incident Command.  This course offers knowledge and skills for officers to stay confident and in control at any scene.
