About the Fire Department

The mission of the Collingwood Fire Department is to serve the community by providing protection from fire, life threatening emergencies and dangerous conditions through education, prevention, rescue, suppression and basic life support services.

The Collingwood Fire Department receives its authority through Provincial legislation and the Fire Chief is ultimately responsible to Town Council for the delivery of fire protection services.
