The Fire Department offers Public Education to the schools in Town as well they go to Day Cares, and the Senior Homes providing them with fire safety information.
The Firefighter’s Ball held in April of each year is a fundraising event hosted by the Firefighter’s Association. Funds raised are used to purchase specialized equipment such as Jaws of Life, a thermal imaging camera and equipment to be used in bush/grass fires such as quads to name a few. The 2017 Firefighter’s Ball will be held on April 8, 2017 at the Teulon-Rockwood Centennial Centre.
