Who we are...

Waterloo Fire Rescue is a fulltime career force of 124 staff serving the diverse needs of the community. Activities include fire suppression, fire prevention, public education, training, mechanical and emergency planning. Waterloo Fire Rescue has four fire stations, four Pumpers (one spare pumper), an Aerial Platform, a Tanker, a Hazmat Trailer and a Platoon Chief Incident Command Vehicle. Other vehicles in the fleet include Fire Prevention vehicles for inspections, a Fire Investigation van, a Public Education vehicle, a Mechanical pickup truck and one Training Special Operations vehicle.
 
A Brief History

The Waterloo Fire Department officially started on December 19, 1876. In the beginning the brigade was divided into two groups, The Waterloo Engine and Hose Company and The Waterloo Hook and Ladder Company. In 1885 the two companies joined to become The Waterloo Fire Brigade. The first equipment was both hand drawn and hand pumped. Waterloo Fire Rescue has come a long way from that December night in 1876 to become one of the most  efficient and progressive fire departments in Ontario.
