Earlier this year, East Gwillimbury and Georgina jointly received about $356,000 from the province to assess a shared fire service.

Now, the towns are seeking input from residents and local business owners on what a joint fire service should look like.

Each town is a hosting public information session and survey.

Residents and local business owners are invited to share their thoughts to help shape how future fire services are delivered. The survey remains open until the end of July.

The joint fire assessment project will look at efficiencies and opportunities to modernize public fire prevention and education, fire safety standards and enforcement, and emergency response.

East Gwillimbury and Georgina fire departments are examining three potential service options:


The funds are also earmarked for updating respective fire master plans as they relate to community growth.

Learn more about current fire services and how emergency services are delivered in each community and what the three potential service options entail at the public information sessions.

Pre-registration is required for both meetings and only pre-registered speakers will be allowed to participate.

A report outlining joint efficiencies and exploring the option of a shared fire service is expected in early 2023.
