Thessalon Fire Department

A Message from our Fire Chief

The Thessalon Volunteer Fire Department staffs a full volunteer team, including a Fire Chief, Deputy Chief, three Captains, one Fire Protection Officer, two Training Officers, and ten dedicated volunteer fire fighters that proudly protect the community.
Our members are committed to providing a professional service, while ensuring the safety of our residents and those who visit our beautiful town. We volunteer our time to protect life, property, and the environment, from fire and natural or man-made emergencies. While fire response is a primary function, we train and prepare to respond to a wide variety of other emergencies.
Our fire fighters are your neighbours. They are paramedics, cooks, carpenters, labourers, plumbers, electricians, clerks, mechanics, engineers, and business owners. They are committed to protecting our great community. As the Fire Chief, I ask you to also make a commitment to the safety of your family. Make sure you have working smoke alarms on every level of your home, and talk with your family about your escape plan if there is a fire in your home.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us through the Municipal Office.
Best regards.


Scott Lawrence
Fire Chief
