Training Branch

Training Branch

The Training Branch is responsible for the development, coordination and delivery of training programs needed for firefighters. Standard operating guidelines/procedures are developed in accordance with East Gwillimbury’s unique services and response history as well as ensuring these are inline with all applicable legislation.  Training is ever evolving and adapting with new techniques, equipment, and technology. Training remains a vital part of the fire departments normal activity to maintain a state of operational readiness. With the wide array of situations to which the department is called to respond, it is imperative that all members of the department remain current in the areas of firefighting, rescue, automatic external defibrillation, CPR, and basic life support. Training reflects the diversity of the emergencies we respond to. In addition to the basic firefighting skills learned and continually trained on, there are many more in specific skills required for specialty/technical incidents.
