Department ProfileEdit

WFES runs a full-time compliment of staff. There are 124 full-time firefighters, including 24 new recruits hired in 2017. This enables the department to operate 5 frontline pumpers, a frontline aerial and a platoon chief. Rescue 35 and Tanker 35 are cross-manned when required. Spare pumpers (36/37/38) are also used when callbacks are required. The department also has a training division (3 staff), fire prevention division (7 staff) and administration & logistics (4.5 staff). Command personnel consist of a chief and two deputies - one for operations and training, the other for prevention and asset management.

Fire Dispatch is provided by Oshawa Fire Services. Apparatus is numbered using a Region-wide system that assigns a number prefix by municipality. Whitby apparatus numbers start with 3.

The Mechanical Division is located at the Town of Whitby Operations Centre on McKinney Drive.
