Lambton College has an extensive reputation in the fire training of municipal and industrial personnel, particularly in the petrochemical and refining industries. Public safety programs complete the post-secondary offerings in the School of Fire Sciences & Public Safety. Provincial and Federal government funding was used to construct a new $12-million Fire & Public Safety Centre of Excellence facility. Lambton College is one of three colleges in Canada – and the only one in Ontario – that has its own fire grounds, complete with a burn tower and multiple training props. Over the next three to five years, this Centre of Excellence will develop into a national leader in fire and public safety training and education.
