Fire training

Firefighters from all three Wellesley Township (ON) stations participated in a house burn June 8, 2019 on Lobsinger Line. The house was owned by a Linwood firefighter who had purchased the farm and is building a new home on property. Firefighters had a good day to use their new Smeal tower which had been picked up the day before. The property had a pond approximately 800 feet from the house.

St Clements pumper set up at the pond to feed the Wellesley pumper and tower. The clear cool day had an east wind which was unusual for the area. The normal wind comes out of the west. Firefighters rotated going up in the bucket and running the new quint. Crews were very happy with the new truck.

Conestoga College pre firefighter students and Wellesley Township firefighters burned a house down 19 April 2013. The annual event gives students a chance for some hands-on firefighting in a rural setting. All firefighting is strictly exterior, supervised by career firefighters and trainers. Water was supplied from a creek located at the front of the property, approximately 600 feet from the house. Box 690 provided rehab and lunch for the 40 firefighters and students on scene.
