The Town of Saugeen Shores operates a Fire Department, made up of about 50 dedicated local volunteer firefighters, a full-time chief, a fire prevention officer, a training officer and an administrative assistant. We are committed to protecting the people and property of our community through emergency response services, fire prevention and fire education efforts.

Fire stations

We provide services from two fire stations, allowing firefighters to respond quickly to calls within our community. We usually respond to about 100 to 150 calls per year in both urban and rural locations around Saugeen Shores.

Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) Program

We replace old automated external defibrillators (AEDs) with new AEDs throughout the community as part of our Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) Program.

You can find the location of all PADs in the community with our convenient Saugeen Shores PAD map and guide.
