Fire Prevention Services  DOTC Fire Prevention program receives funding from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada.   The objective is to provide Technical in implementing proper fire protection and preventative services to the DOTC communities.  The Program provides updated fire fighting courses for any member of the Fire Department upon request and facilitates communities in developing Fire & Safety Emergency Response Programming.   The program is responsible for three major deliverables.  Training for Level 1 fire fighting practices, this includes completing a 22 block fire fighting practices book and 54 sheet skills list. The course is approximately 8 weeks long. The Fire Commissioner's office conducts the testing at the Brandon Airport Training Centre.  CPR and First Aid is another deliverable we provide, training consists of a two day course, 1 day for CPR & 1 day for First Aid. We currently received the insurance and equipment required to deliver the course.  Advice and assistance is provided to DOTC communities that do not have working fire departments in their communities. Working agreements with outside fire departments and agencies are pursued to ensure proper safety is achieved.
