Temagami & Marten River

In Ontario with any level of Firefighting you are employed by your local level of government. Many Volunteer Firefighters receive compensation and are paid many different amounts for what they do, depending on the municipality. As a municipal employee certain standards are expected of you, including attending a certain percentage of Trainings and Calls. If you do not meet these requirements, as with any job, disciplinary action will be taken.

The Health and Safety of our staff is a top priority and todays Volunteer Firefighter is a very well equipped and trained Firefighter. The municipality provides all the necessary personal protective gear and training that covers Firefighting, Vehicle Extrication, Water and Shore based Rescue Training and many more topics.

A variety of emergency Fire & Rescue services are provided by a special group of dedicated volunteers. Our volunteer Firefighters respond to approximately 60 calls a year, most of which are vehicle accidents.

Municipal Fire Department primary response areas include the urban areas, the highway corridors, municipal and maintained roads suitable for our fire trucks. Municipal fire departments do not provide emergency response services to areas inaccessible by conventional fire trucks The majority of structures in these areas are water access only properties. A Municipal Forest Fire Agreement provides for forest fire suppression (including values protection) from the Ministry of Natural Resources during the Forest Fire Season.
