Windsor Fire to Study Possibility of Joint Windsor-Essex Firefighter Training Facility

Windsor Firefighters may soon have a new training facility to keep them sharp and ready to tackle emergency situations.

City Administrators have long planned to replace the aging training facility on College Avenue, but in this year’s City of Windsor Capital Budget, the facility is planned to not be built until 2016 or beyond as part of a new Fire Station on County Road 42. In a written request by Fire Chief Bruce Montone, a feasibility study will be conducted pending City Council approval to consult Essex County fire departments to build a joint Windsor-Essex fire training facility, share costs and have the facility built within a shorter timeframe.

The new training tower/facility would ensure all Windsor-Essex fire personnel have a standard level of training and ability and would eliminate the current situation of new firefighters having to do their training “on the job” at actual fires.
