About the Fire Department

The City of Niagara Falls is one of the most diverse and interesting municipalities in Southern Ontario. The City is filled with breathtaking historic and cultural assets – making Niagara Falls a must see stop on any travel itinerary. This also creates challenges for the Niagara Falls Fire Department in order to keep our residents and visitors safe.

In order to rise to the challenge of having a big city amenities within small city resources, our fire department took responsibility for a higher level of training and response by utilizing a “train the trainer” philosophy many years ago. We provided a higher level of training to those employees who were eager to step forward, creating highly qualified practitioners in a variety of disciplines. This saves the City training costs, provides for a flexible training schedule and directly utilizes a higher level of operational expertise. Examples of this include medical, auto extrication, technical rescue and water rescue capabilities.

Our Fire Prevention division has a daunting task to ensure code compliance in the vast number of commercial buildings within their jurisdiction. We have incorporated a zero tolerance approach to fire safety violations out of necessity, again to ensure the safety of people in our community.

It is imperative that we maximize the performance of each employee, due to the size, scale and diversity of structures in our city. We are committed to the highest level of service and continue to achieve greatness, through the efforts of each employee in our department.
