The Canton Township Fire Department annually hosts the University of Akron’s “Advanced Fire Training Days.” This four-day, hands-on training was conducted by some of the best fire instructors from around the state. Multiple firefighters from array of Northeast Ohio fire departments attended this intense training, under live fire conditions. Instructors facilitated an “Engine Company Operations” track or a “Truck Company Operations” track for students to choose from. The event hosted approximately 50 firefighters daily. These folks truly go above the call of duty, investing themselves and sharing their knowledge to those around them for the challenges of the job!
