Fire and Emergency Services

Acting Fire Chief's Message

Prevention programs include public education programs, fire safety inspections, Fire Code enforcement, emergency planning and new building plans examination.  The public education programs provide residents of all ages with information on how to protect themselves, their homes, families, co-workers and our community on a day-to-day basis.  Risk Watch, Learn Not To Burn, Older and Wiser, and TAPP-C are some of the internationally recognized programs used by our prevention staff.  These are augmented by training programs developed by staff to train our citizens in the use of portable fire extinguishers, development and maintenance of emergency plans, operation of fire safety and suppression systems as well as a host of other safety topics.

Emergency response services include fire suppression, extrication and other rescue operations, emergency medical assistance, and emergency incident management.  All staff members are instrumental in the delivery of these services in our community.  Our part-time staff are a competent and very dedicated group of citizens willing to make personal sacrifices for the protection and good of the community.  Our staff multi-task  filling roles in prevention, inspection and public education, in-service training and education programs, apparatus and equipment maintenance while being prepared to ably respond to an emergency incident at any time.

I am very proud of the caliber of people making up our staff and the high standards they set for themselves in service delivery.  Our strength truly is in our people.

Education and prevention programs supported by dedicated emergency responders assures our community of the best possible service today and is the foundation to build towards a safe and secure future.  With the support of our citizens - with your support - we will be the leader in community safety.
