The Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service (VFRS) is committed to enhancing the quality of life of the citizens of Vaughan. The "protection of lives and property" is a generalized statement that encompasses several specialized services provided by the Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service.
A goal of the Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service -- to stop fires before they start, is a commitment to our community.
Businesses in Vaughan can rely on the Fire Prevention division to seek their compliance and help them develop a comprehensive fire safety program and to assist in all matters pertaining to the Fire Code.
Fire Safety Education Programs include lectures, practical demonstrations and special projects. The educational programs not only address the business community, they reach out into schools and community organizations.
The 265+ men and women of the Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service work in unison from eight fire stations to ensure our citizens receive emergency services quickly and efficiently. The Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service prides itself on serving our community in a professional and courteous manner.
The Operations Division (formerly Fire Suppression) is prepared to meet the ever changing needs of our community. In addition to fire suppression services, we provide such specialized services as technical rescue, medical assistance including defibrillation, auto extrication and response to hazardous materials emergencies.
