St. Catharines Fire Services

Mission Statement

To serve and protect the citizens of St Catharines from the ravages of fire, to prevent their property from becoming less valuable, and to allow for a continued quality of life through a knowledge of fire safety.

What we do

The St. Catharines Fire and Emergency Services provides fire and emergency service for the City of St. Catharines. The highly trained individuals of the St. Catharines Fire and Emergency Services deliver public education and fire safety programs, emergency response, including technical rescue, and ensure the City has current emergency/business continuity plans to maintain essential public services.

Fire Service In the Community

Fire Services attended Brock University orientation week in order to raise awareness of the dangers of fire and to provide information on fire safety in St. Catharines.   

Brock University in collaboration with St. Catharines Fire Services demonstrated how quickly a fire can reach deadly flashover conditions by setting fire to a burn cell furnished with typical bedroom furnishings.   

It is essential that students understand the dangers of fire and take responsibility for their own fire safety by insuring that they have working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.  Additional safety tips for students for student accommodation and general safety tips are available by clicking on these links.

On November 2, 2013, the city's newest Fire Station, Station 4, was officially opened by the Mayor and Fire Chief. This station, in addition to housing one fire pumper, is also home to one spare vehicle, the departments training division and city training rooms as well as the main corporate data centre.
