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.

A Groundbreaking Ceremony took place at the site of the recreation centre in September 2017, with some of our Councillors, Mayor Allan Thompson and special dignitaries all in attendance. Community members were able to hear about the vision for the new community centre in Southfields and connect personally with invited guests. You can see some photos of the event here: Southfields Ground Breaking.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How can my children get to/from school safely? What route should they take?

  • During construction, the sidewalk on the south side of Dougall Avenue (east of Kennedy) will be closed. School crossing guards will assist children to cross to the north side of Dougall Avenue
  • Approximately 30 minutes before and after school, crossing guards will be posted at:
    • the Kennedy/Dougall intersection - 1 crossing guard; and
    • the Learmont/Dougall intersection- 2 crossing guards.
  • This temporary closure will be clearly signed at both intersections to advise pedestrians to cross at the designated area and travel east to west on the north side of Dougall Ave. This temporary closure will remain during active construction.
  • View the closure map (PDF).

Is there another community space that residents can use while the community centre is being built?

  • The Town is finalizing temporary program space within the Southfields community. This will allow our recreation staff and the community hub partners an opportunity to deliver some programming in advance of the completion of new community centre. More information will be provided soon.

When can residents expect construction vehicles and equipment to be operational and making noise?

  • Construction will take place within the hours stated in the Town's Noise by-law (6 a.m. - 11 p.m.)
