Fire & Rescue

The Fire Department works to prevent or minimize the impacts of emergency incidents by:

  • delivering prompt and effective response to fire, rescue and medical emergencies
  • protecting life, property and the environment
  • providing fire prevention and education services to the public
  • enforcing regulations, including the Fire Code and municipal bylaws

Fire & Rescue Services is comprised of six functions: Administration, Emergency Response, Fire Prevention, Public Education, Mechanical and Training.

Home Fire Safety

Fire prevention starts at home. A properly stocked household, complete with functioning smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and carbon monoxide sensors, could be the difference between a controlled situation and a tragedy. Read on for tips and advice and how you can be prepared. More Information
