With the support of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC), the former Ontario Fire & Life Safety Educators (OFLSE) committee was dissolved and a new, official entity was formed.
Introducing… the Ontario Association of Fire Educators (OAFE)!
The OAFE will be bringing its members all the latest and greatest resources, news, updated. training & development opportunities as well as one of the best (and most fun) professional networks for Public Education in Ontario’s fire service.
We would not have been able to start this transition without the generous support of the Ontario Association of Fire Training Officers, the OFLSE committees’ respective fire departments and the OAFC.
The OAFE also has formalized a partnership with the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) and we cannot wait to work with them!
OAFE is registered as a not-for-profit incorporation, is guided by its Constitution & By-laws and will operate as a member-driven association moving forward. The first fiscal term will be led by the former OFLSE Committee acting as the OAFE Board of Directors/Executive. Beyond the first term, the Board will be a member-elected entity.
