Windsor Fire and Rescue
Hazmat Team Strengthened by CP
The Windsor Fire and Rescue Services’ CBRNE HAZMAT Team is even better
equipped and trained now, thanks to support from Canadian Pacific Railway.
The Windsor Team is one of three Level 3 teams in Ontario which
encompasses expert technicians specializing in hazardous response for chemical,
biological, radioactive, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) incidents throughout
Windsor and Essex County, as well as incidents throughout Ontario when
The Team requires ongoing training in many areas to stay current with
the needs of our communities. In
recognition of this specialized training, CP generously donated $27,200 to our CBRNE
HAZMAT Team for specialized training and equipment upgrades.
The donation gave WFRS and Team members the ability to:
- Attend a CP Rail training course on rail car
- Specialized training on air monitoring and
- Purchase monitoring equipment
- Training for four team members to the Specialist Level
On behalf of the City of Windsor and Windsor Fire
& Rescue Services (WFRS), we thank CP for their continued support and we
look forward to working together in the future.
