Volunteer Fire Department
The Upper Island Cove Fire Department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 52 weeks a year, and is fully VOLUNTEER.
There are three equally important elements of a Fire Department:
* Emergency Response
* Fire Prevention; and
* Public Education
Each element is critical and represents public safety for our community. Our Fire Department has a special set of responsibilities and must continue to develop and expand its role within our town, and strive to not only meet, but exceed, expectations in the areas of the three elements noted.
Our department has 26 members, and are fully trained in First Response, and Fire Fighting Capabilities, and respond to all medical calls, and are equipped with oxygen and defibrillator on board.
If you have any concerns regarding Fire prevention, or fire safety please contact any member of the fire department, and we would be glad to assist you.
