It is up to the forest industry companies; railways and Fire Departments to set their own standard for the instructors. The MNR does not provide formal certification for this training. However, the strength and ability to inspire confidence and trust in the services they receive from Fire 1’s instructors are made possible by a lifetime of experience. The knowledge they bring of forest fire fighting techniques and advice cannot be gained through the simple following of training manuals.
