Fire Training Facility 

Construction of Phase 1 of the Caledon Fire and Emergency Services' new multidisciplinary training facility began July 1, 2019 with basic site preparation and pouring of the concrete foundation of the main fire training structure. The approved budget for Phase 1 is $1.3 million and is expected to be completed by Summer 2020.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How will the training facility increase firefighter safety?
With properly designed and constructed to National Fire Protection Association and Ontario Building Code requirements, the new training facility and equipment will replace the existing “ad hoc” training at other municipalities’ training facilities.

We will be able to create standard and well-planned training modules in a dynamic, realistic and safe environment. This will provide our firefighters with the necessary training and development.

How noisy will the training facility be?
Fire trucks will not use their sirens at the training facility. Truck engines, small motor engines (e.g. pumps and chainsaws) would be used at the training facility, none of which create considerable noise pollution when used on their own.
How will the new facility does it affect me, my kids, and my property value?
The fire training facility is designed to blend in with the agricultural heritage of Caledon and will utilize current local planting, trees and bushes as an extension of the natural scenery.

 

Inglewood Community Centre

The Inglewood Community Centre will be expanded to accommodate child care and early years programs. The proposed expansion involves the design and construction of an addition to the existing building to create approximately 5,000 sq.ft. of space. Along with supporting amenities, the addition will include:

  • Licensed child care spaces for 24 preschool and 15 toddler-aged children
  • EarlyON centre for approximately 30 parents, caregivers, children and staff. EarlyON centres offer free, high-quality drop-in programs for families with children ages birth to 6 years old.

This will support our growing community as we create greater access to inclusive, quality licensed child care and early years programs. Access to the facility will be maintained during renovations, although the playground equipment will be removed during construction.

Construction is expected to begin in mid-2020 and will typically take place from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, and after hours/weekends as required.
