Message from the Fire Chief:
Ramara Fire & Rescue Services consists
of three Fire Halls, Station 1 in Brechin, Station 2 in Atherley and
Station 3 in Washago. The department is a volunteer organization
comprised of up to 70 dedicated men and women. All of whom under the
direction of the Fire Chief Dave McCarthy, strive to provide the best
possible service to the residents of our municipality, whether the
response is regarding a fire, a motor vehicle accident or a health
related issue. The Fire &
Rescue Services’ primary function is to attend to fires within our
communities; however they are also very involved in emergency rescue on
land and water. Our Deputy Fire Chief/Fire Prevention Officer, Tony
Stong, provides inspection services with regard to home safety, wood
stove installation and vendor licensing. Our
Department also provides the community with a very strong Public Safety
Awareness Program whereby some of our volunteers go to schools and
rural fairs to demonstrate the "fire house" and advise residents with
regard to home safety.
If you would like to
make a burning complaint, please call 705-484-5374 ext. 253 (Monday-Friday
8:00am-4:30pm), or call 705-484-5374 and dial 8 after hours. In the event of an
emergency, call 911.
