Fire & Emergency Services

Fire and Rescue is a program of the Planning and Infrastructure Department responsible for the protection and safety readiness of our community as it relates to fire protection and other emergency services. 

Fire Rescue has two divisions that work collaboratively to offer quality fire protection and safety services, as well as Emergency First Response services to our community.

Fire Rescue responds to all 911 calls concerning requests for immediate fire protection services as well as emergency medical services.  Sagamok Fire and Rescue is first on the scene and works closely with other community partners, like the Anishinabek Police Services (APS).  Fire and Rescue also provides referral services for victims and patients.

Because safety is important to every community, the Sagamok Fire Department maintains a high visibility in the Sagamok community.  Our Fire and Emergency Services personnel engage the Sagamok community providing education and information on fire prevention and safety, as well as participating in all community and organizational functions. 

Fire and Rescue is managed and coordinated through our Fire Chief, Bruce Southwind, who is complimented by a volunteer-based fire protection team who respond to fires in our community and a volunteer-based First Response team who are first to respond to all types of community emergencies.
