Public Services

The Fire Department does more than respond to emergencies!  During the course of a typical week, firefighters may be found engaged in a wide range of activities such  as:

  • Training: for our own members and members of other fire departments
  • Equipment Maintenance: ensuring that everything is in working order for when an emergency call comes in
  • Fire Hydrant Maintenance: including testing, winterizing and painting
  • Fire Inspections: to help property owners minimize risks and prevent losses
  • Pre-incident Planning
  • Post-fire Investigations
  • Disaster Management Planning: in cooperation with other agencies and departments
  • Public Education: courses and seminars for interested groups
  • Fire Hall Tours: for school groups and others
  • Administration: records management and reporting
  • And more.

There is never a dull day at the fire department!
