Since December 1917 Owen Sound has been protected by a full time professional Fire Department. Currently we run with 5 firefighters on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week all year round. This along with providing our own on call firefighters at all times means we can provide 10 firefighters to fires within a matter of minutes. This composite style fire department allows a great professional service while remaining more cost effective than a traditional full time department. We respond to fires, CO alarms, medical calls, marine rescue as well as specialized rescue (such as ice water rescue, swift water rescue, high angle rope rescues) and so much more. Check out the photos from us at work and training over the last few years.
