Tour of the newly renovated facility and meet the new Fire Chief
The Cobourg Fire Department would like to invite all members of the public to attend an Open House at the Cobourg Fire Hall on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
The Cobourg Fire Hall recently underwent renovations after receiving an Ontario Builds Grant from the Province of Ontario. These renovations have allowed the Fire Department to improve
operational health and safety through the introduction of a proper decontamination area. This area provides firefighters the ability to remove and wash contaminated firefighting gear and
immediately shower. This will reduce fire related cancers and create a safe work environment.
A proper bunker gear storage area has been added to ensure gear is stored properly and is ready for the next emergency. Additionally, new technology has been introduced that will
enhance the ability to train staff.
Members of the community are invited to take a tour of the updated facility, guided by member of the Cobourg Fire Department. The Open House will also provide an opportunity
for community members to meet Cobourg’s new Fire Chief, Ellard Beaven.
