ABOUT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT

The Pic River Fire Department (PRFD) is a volunteer organization made up of men and women from all walks of life. We are a group of individuals committed to fire protection and prevention of people and community that is Pic River.

Currently our department trains accordingly to the standardized provincial curriculum for Fire Departments. Training involves fire behavior, fire ground operations, search and rescue, wild land fire, as well as other various topics under the fire protection umbrella.

We gather on Wednesday evenings for a couple of hours and go through a standardized training modules. From time to time members travel to external training opportunities such as TAPP-C (arson prevention), Fireworks Certification, Pumper Training, and Incident Command training.

 In March 2009, Pic River received funding to purchase another fire truck from Southern Ontario.
