Fire Departments

24 hour Fire Services is provided by volunteers from either the Marten River Fire Department or the Temagami Fire Department, as authorized by council under Municipal Establishing and Regulating Bylaws. 

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 fire suppression services to areas inaccessible by conventional fire trucks.  

A Municipal Forest Fire Agreement provides for forest fire suppression (including values protection) from the Ministry of Natural Resources during the Forest Fire Season.

For persons interested in joining the department as a volunteer firefighter, be advised that a volunteer has no set scheduled hours of work and are on call 24 hours a day. There are however regularly scheduled training sessions held that firefighters are expected to attend. Further information can be found under Recruiting; applications are also available at the Town Hall Office.
