We are happy to announce the release of two new online submission forms at

Although the forms are still available for download, we ask that you discontinue using paper forms whenever possible so as to minimize duplicate data entry needs.

The email confirmation you will receive will form the basis of all future communications related to your facility request.

This does not confirm that the facility/prop you requested is available or that your request has been confirmed - only that we have received your online submission.

You will receive future email acknowledgements indicating that your request is either Pending, Confirmed or Declined depending on facility availability and other conditions.

All Erie County Training Facilities are Tobacco (Chew), Smoke and Vapor (E-Cigarette) FREE. USE OF THESE PRODUCTS IS PROHIBITED ON PROPERTY.

Please don't hesitate to contact our office should you have any questions or require further information.


We will add your request information to our list of open facility requests and will assign instructor(s) as available; and as appropriate to the training requested, location and the date order in which it was received.

Once you have received a "Confirmed" status acknowledgement from our office, you are expected to reach out to the lead instructor to coordinate training expectations and details.
