September 9 - September 13
For the past 28 years, Emergency North Training (ENT), has developed critical regional training 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 northwest continue to be under significant pressure to reduce costs and spending. With that said, the courses offered at FireCon, on a per-student basis, are likely the best opportunity for your first responders to receive affordable training to a recognized standard. As such, ENT prides itself in delivering training that is affordable, accessible and attainable. Courses offered at FireCon adheres to standards that are acceptable to the Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM), Emergency Management (EM), and the Ministry of Labour.
Collaboration and partnerships with the OFM, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs, and many corporate sponsors, ensure that our objective to provide regional emergency training, in particular, the staging of FireCon event, remain possible.
FireCon is more than just training. It is the rendezvous for the fire service in the north. In addition to the training, we host a professional trade show where attendees receive information from company experts on new equipment, technology and services. On Saturday evening, we host our annual banquet. At the banquet, attendees enjoy a delicious meal and entertainment, and have the opportunity to network with other in the fire service, expanding their fire service network.
