Our mission will be accomplished through Fire Prevention, Education and Emergency preparedness programs. When called upon we will provide a rapid and professional response to emergencies, show compassion for victims and minimize damage to the environment.
Loyalist Township Emergency Services consists of four Fire Stations, located in Amherstview, Bath, Amherst Island, and the headquarters station in Odessa. Our departments cover 340 square kilometers, protecting a population of approximately 15,000.
Five full-time staff - Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, Public Education Training Officer, Emergency Vehicle Technician, and Fire Inspector- and approximately ninety volunteer firefighters respond to fires, rescues, medical and hazardous materials emergencies, and motor vehicle accidents.
If you are interested in joining our team, if you're in great shape and have an interest in volunteering in your community, send a letter of application and resume in word format to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also drop it off at the Odessa Station during office hours.
