We provide a range of services to residents and visitors in the Town of Georgina. These include fire suppression, medical aid response, motor vehicle accident response, hazardous material response, ice/water rescue response and fire prevention/public education.

We also provide public education, enforcement of the Ontario Fire Code and investigate causes of fires. Our services and mandate are outlined in our Establishing and Regulating By-Law.

Change your clocks, change your batteries

A reminder to all residents that when you change the clocks on Nov. 1, 2020, change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Remember, only working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms save lives.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) Awareness Week – Nov. 1-7, 2020

black, red and white with a white smoke alarm and the words beat the silent killer

Carbon monoxide (CO) is known as the silent killer because it is a colourless, tasteless and odourless gas that can be deadly. It's produced when fuels such as propane, gasoline, natural gas, heating oil or wood do not burn completely in fuel-burning appliances and devices such as furnaces, fireplaces, hot water heaters, stoves, barbeques, portable heaters and generators or vehicles.

  • Be aware of the hazard. CO is a highly poisonous gas. It’s non-irritating and displaces oxygen in the body, causing the nervous system to completely shut down.
  • Eliminate CO at the source. Have a TSSA-certified fuel technician inspect and maintain your fuel-burning appliances every year. It is the smart thing to do and it is your responsibility.
  • Install certified CO alarms in your home. If your house has a fuel-burning appliance or an attached garage, you must have a working CO alarm adjacent to each sleeping area. Remember to regularly test the alarm(s) and replace batteries.
  • Know the symptoms of CO poisoning. They are like the flu – nausea, headache, burning eyes, confusion and drowsiness – except there is no fever. If they appear, immediately get everyone, including pets, outside to fresh air and call 911 or your local fire department.
