The group formerly known as the Ontario Fire & Life Safety Educators (OFLSE) has officially transitioned. In 2020, with the support of our Official Partner, the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC), we have completed the process of forming a non-profit incorporation now known as the Ontario Association of Fire Educators (OAFE).
This change has been with the encouragement of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) and also thanks to generous support from the Ontario Association of Fire Training Officers.
The OAFE strives to give fire public education its own voice, a strong portfolio, representation across our industry, and the opportunity to provide training & network opportunities, resources and expertise to our members.
From seminars and conferences to strong partnerships with industry stakeholders and cutting edge resources, the OAFE is well positioned to be the one-stop shop for fire departments across the Province.
The outgoing OFLSE Executive will transition to the inaugural Board of Directors, ensuring continuity and leadership during this transition. Subsequent terms will be decided via formal election process, with all active members able to participate.
These are exciting times for fire & life safety in Ontario! The OAFE Board of Directors is very excited for our future and the opportunities it presents.
