HistoryEdit

Mississauga Fire & Emergency Services

The Mississauga Fire Department was established in 1968 through the merging of local fire departments from Cooksville, Lakeview, Malton, Meadowvale, and the Toronto Township Volunteer Fire Department. The Port Credit Fire Department and Streetsville Fire Department became part of MFD when the City of Mississauga was incorporated in 1974 as part of municipal restructuring in Peel Region. The first station to open as the Mississauga Fire Department was the original Station 6 (later renumbered 106, now demolished). By 1975, Mississauga's fire service became a full time department and the name was eventually changed to Mississauga Fire & Emergency Services (MFES).

Department ProfileEdit

Mississauga Fire currently operates on 4x 24-hour shifts (A, B, C, D) with approximately 125 firefighters on duty at any time. The department operates 20 fire stations (with 1 more on the way) and 30 frontline apparatus, including:

  • 16 Pumpers (including 1x 75' quint)
  • 6 Squads (rescue pumpers)
  • 8 Aerials (6x 103'-107' ladders, 2x 100' platforms)

All stations and apparatus were renumbered to the present day 100 series numbers in the early 1990s as part of a regional numbering system.

Today, Mississauga Fire responds to over 30,000 emergency calls annually and co-ordinates with Toronto Fire Services, Brampton Fire and Emergency Services, Peel Regional Paramedic Services, Peel Regional Police and Toronto Pearson Fire & Emergency Services. The department is also part of the International Association of Fire Fighters union, local 1212.
