Providing Support to Local Fire Services During COVID-19

Published on March 12, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges within Ontario’s fire services.

That is why the government is providing $5 million in funding to help local fire services address the impacts of COVID19.

This new investment will enhance opportunities for training and support fire safety inspections needed to keep our communities safe.

It will also support updates to specialized critical equipment, such as high-speed internet, to enhance virtual training and enable remote options to support fire safety and compliance with Ontario’s Fire Code while minimizing exposure to the virus. 

The government will continue to listen to fire services across the province. We are grateful to these brave, dedicated individuals for their commitment to protecting Ontarians as the fight against COVID-19 continues.
