Markham Fire & Emergency Services is committed to providing the highest level of life safety and property protection to those who live, work or play in our community.
We will perform in a sensitive and caring manner, through the provision of excellent preventative, educational and emergency services.
Station 99 Officially Opened
Our newest Fire Station was officially opened on Saturday November 10, 2012. The station is located at 3255 Bur Oak Avenue, just south of Church Street.
Fire Safety Videos
Our fire safety videos have been created to address the typical questions we receive when we are out in the public at community events. The topics covered are smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. Each video is short so that you can gather the specific information you need. The videos are also offered in 5 languages: English, Chinese, Farsi, Greek and Tamil. We will continue to produce additional videos in the future that will cover even more topics as well as additional languages.
TVOKids - Everybody Help Out campaign
TVOKids is working in partnership with Food Banks across the province, the YMCA and the Ontario Fire Marshal in the effort to make it easy to drop off donated food.
York Regional Police Community Alert
Sign up for alerts from York Regional Police about community safety matters in your area. When you register for the program you'll be notified about situations such as a rash of break and enters, vehicle thefts or a missing child. The system will also be used to alert citizens in the event of an emergency.
Markham's Emergency Management Program is under the Office of the Commissioner of Community and Fire Services.
Working closely with Markham Fire and Emergency Services, the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for Markham focuses on ensuring that Markham meets all the legal requirements set out in the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act in Ontario.
One of the most important roles of the Markham Emergency Management Program is public education in emergency preparedness.
