MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF

New Tecumseth Fire Rescue consists of 124 Volunteer firefighters, a full time Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief of Operations And Training and Deputy Fire Chief of Prevention and Education. The department operates 3 fire stations located within New Tecumseth, Station 1-Alliston, Station 2-Beeton and Station 3-Tottenham. Our Administration Office is located at the Joint Operations Centre at 6558 8th Concession in Beeton. Our response area is 180 sq. kilometres and includes a population of approximately 34,000 residents both rural and urban.

The purpose of New Tecumseth Fire Rescue is to protect the life and property of its citizens in New Tecumseth from fire and other public safety hazards through prevention, education, planning and emergency incident services, fire extinguisher training, rescue, suppression and basic life support services.

Fire and Safety education programs are presented to schools throughout the community through the ‘Learn Not To Burn’ program, with the help of the newest addition to the department, the fire safety house. With the support of the entire community this is a proactive approach to inform residents of public safety and fire prevention programs.

When there’s an emergency, every second counts. Whether it is a fire, traffic accident or medical emergency, volunteer firefighters do not hesitate to help. When you see a vehicle with a green flashing light, it means that a volunteer firefighter is en route to an emergency.

The flashing green light is used by active firefighters as a courtesy light, asking other drivers to give them the right away. While the green light does not allow users to break any Highway Traffic Act regulations it is used to simply ask other motorists to help them get to the scene of the emergency quickly and safely by giving them the right-of-way.
