Proudly Serving Since 1850

Owen Sound Professional Firefighters


The Owen Sound Professional Fire Fighters have been serving the community continuously since the first volunteers began the journey in 1850 and which subsequently became a full time service in 1916 with 2016 marking 100 years of full time service.  We are a proud group of professionals committed to protecting the residents and visitors to the City of Owen Sound which is located in Ontario, Canada.

We are very proud to have the opportunity to continue to raise money and awareness for many different charities, especially Muscular Dystrophy.  As well, we take tremendous pride in our annual Toy Drive that has been providing smiles to countless children for numerous generations.

We continue to honour the long standing traditions and history while constantly adapting to the ever changing landscape of the fire service.

Please check out our website for more information about our department’s history, apparatus, operations and our community involvement.

As always we are here to help so if you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,

Your Owen Sound Professional Fire Fighters Local 53
