Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fire services in York Region are provided for and by each municipality. There are 35 fire stations across the region. Most services consist of full time members, but some services have volunteer firefighters. The departments in south York Region deal mostly with residential and commercial incidents. The northern departments deal with rural, residential and agricultural fire needs. Fire departments in York Region date back to the 19th Century and all were volunteer units. It was until later in the 20th Century did full time fire departments emerge. Some departments in the region still retain volunteer units. East Gwillimbury Fire was the last all volunteer service in the region until 2008 when the first crew of career firefighters was hired.show more
