The Fire Services Division provides fire suppression, inspection and education services to the residents of Lakeshore.
Comprised of 5 stations, the department is made up of some 100 volunteer firefighters. Direction is provided by 5 full time administration officers and clerical support staff.
The department also provides medical support to the Land Ambulance Service through a tiered response agreement. With 40 kilometres of 401 highway dividing Lakeshore, the department also provides emergency services to that portion of the 400 series highway.
The Fire Services Division will be concluding a Master Planning Exercise in 2010 to plan for appropriate emergency services through 2020.
