The city of Brampton recently hosted a ceremony to celebrate the Williams Parkway Fire Campus that is expected to open in 2022.
This facility will be a state of the art headquarters for Brampton’s Prevention Division, with a new Fire Station 203, an Emergency Operations Centre and an Emergency Measures Office as well as indoor and outdoor Fire Training facilities.
It will be over 70,000 square ft. in size, which will be used to manage, educate, train, conduct research and develop new initiatives for fire prevention.
Chief Bill Boyes, Brampton Fire and Emergency Services, said, “We are always striving for excellence in our service delivery to our community. Our new Williams Parkway Fire campus will allow us to continue to improve the future of firefighting through its facilities, while also providing us a memorial space to remember and honour Brampton firefighters who paid the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives while protecting our residents.”
