The Fire Services Division is comprised of career and volunteer fire fighters dedicated to delivering fire protection services through the City of Greater Sudbury.  There are approximately 107 career staff and 350 volunteer fire fighters that respond to about 4,600 emergency responses per year.  

The Fire Services Division consists of three components:  

  • Fire Fighting   Fire fighters respond to various incidents such as structural, wildland and vehicle fires, water/ice rescues, vehicle extrications, land search and rescues, carbon monoxide and fire alarm calls, and medical aid calls.  
  • Training   The daily fire fighter training program ensures that fire fighters develop and maintain the knowledge and skills necessary to operate equipment, perform fire fighting, rescue and hazardous materials operations and respond to medical aid calls.  Fire fighters also receive special training in advanced First Aid and Defibrillation.  
  • Fire Prevention   Fire Prevention staff conduct regular fire safety inspections of all types of occupancies as defined by the Ontario Building Code.  These inspections are carried out under the provisions of the Ontario Fire Code/Fire Marshal's Act and form a large part of the Fire Inspectors daily activities.  

    Inspectors also respond to and resolve citizen complaints and concerns regarding fire safety and are very active in public education.  As part of the public education program, Inspectors conduct training sessions at health care facilities, hotels and businesses, etc.  Training sessions include proper use of fire extinguishers, fire evacuation and other fire safety issues.
