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 required.

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 emergencies
  • Specialized training on air monitoring and chemistry
  • 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. ​
