Springwater Fire and Emergency Services works with Simcoe County Paramedic Services and Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) to protect our community. Our fire department has over 90 volunteer firefighters, supported by a full-time Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, Training Officer and Fire Prevention Officer. Services include:
- Emergency response and fire suppression
- Fire safety inspections and training
- Public education and outreach
- Emergency management
- Enforcement of open air and recreational burn permits
Our Master Fire Plan sets a blueprint for the future of Springwater Fire and Emergency Services.
| We have four active fire stations across Springwater:
Fire hydrants must have at least 1.2 metres of space around them at all times. If you have a hydrant close to your property, please keep it clear of snow, trees and other vegetation.
Emergency management team
Combined with intergovernmental assistance, our Emergency Management team implements our Emergency Response Plan and raises awareness in the community about emergency preparedness.
