Public Educators

The Ontario Fire & Life Safety Educators in conjunction with the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs have developed a Public Educator’s Conference to share information, build networks and participate in training. We encourage all fire service educators to participate in this spring training session as it has been designed just for you!
The 2015 Public Fire & Life Safety Educators Conference will take place on Sunday, May 3rd to Tuesday, May 5th in conjunction with the OAFC Conference and Trade Show at the Toronto Congress Centre. Attendees of the Educator’s Conference will also get to visit the largest fire
service trade show in Canada.  There are over 250 booths to discover and many opportunities to visit with different vendors who will showcase
all the newest products, technology and services available in today’s fire service.  It is the largest gathering of fire service personnel in the country.
The Educator’s Conference also incorporates a variety of presentations including some from the main conference agenda and a selection that have been specially designed for public educators.
