Burn Cell Available in GTA for CAFI Members

Live fire exercises are one of the best training tools for teaching fire investigators about fire development, spread, ventilation effects, and fire patterns.

Live fire training options can be few and far between but now you can perform your own live fire exercises, training and testing using the CAFI South Central Ontario Chapter burn cell. The burn cell is available to all CAFI members and is conveniently located at the Fire & Emergency Services Training Institute (FESTI) located next to Pearson Airport in Mississauga, Ontario. FESTI is fully equipped with pumper trucks and firefighters so that you can rest assured your burn will be completed and extinguished safely.

  • Model your own structure fires
  • Perform live fire training for your investigators
  • Perform burn testing to validate your hypothesis
  • The robust construction of the cell allows for post-flashover fire tests

For more information please contact CAFI 006 at CAFIChapter006@gmail.com.

If anyone is conducting live burns I would love to attend with my Accelerant K9 Cinder.  It would be great to use the cell once you have completed your test burn.  Thanks.
