Milton Fire & Rescue Services is made up of a combination of full and part-time staff, reporting directly to Town Council through the Chief Administration Officer.

Management team

The management team includes three senior personnel:

  • The Fire Chief
  • Two Deputy Fire Chiefs

They are responsible for providing 24-hour service, seven days per week in the event of emergencies. Responsibilities are divided into three areas:

  • Administration
  • Operations (including emergency operations, rescue and training)
  • Support services

Emergency operations

We are responsible for:

  • Traditional firefighting
  • Motor vehicle accident, ice, water, confined space and high angle rescues
  • Initial intervention in hazardous material incidents
  • Medical response (only when an ambulance is delayed)

Fire prevention

We offer a variety of programs and services as well as fire and safety education to help prevent fires in Milton. These programs focus on public education and fire prevention. They include home fire inspections, smoke alarm training, educational presentations, emergency planning and preparedness and more.


In order to provide quality fire service to residents, we need to ensure our staff receive regular training opportunities. We train on best practices in fire rescue and prevention and provide both theoretical and hands-on training opportunities.

Support services

The Support Services division is responsible for communication within the department, mapping and information technology (IT), as well as development planning and reviews. This includes dispatching systems, radio systems and specialized equipment.


The administrative division provides administrative and clerical support to all staff. We are responsible for processing and analyzing department statistics, including data entry and analysis for emergency response calls.
