Area ServedEdit

Kawartha Lakes is a large amalgamated city covering an area of 3083 square kilometres of farmland, forests and lakes. It's home to about 73,000 people.

The city is mainly rural, with several communities of varying size. Lindsay (approximate population 20,000) is the largest community and is the centre of commerce and administration for the area. Other major communities include Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Woodville and Omemee. The economy is based on agriculture (particularly in the south), manufacturing and tourism. The Trent-Severn Waterway passes through the area.

Department ProfileEdit

Kawartha Lakes Fire Rescue is a composite department. The headquarters station in Lindsay has a full-time crew 24/7, while all other stations are manned by part-time personnel. There are 18 full-time and approximately 420 part-time personnel. The chief and three assistant chiefs are also full-time.

For a number of years, Omemee and Bobcaygeon stations were crewed weekdays during the day, but this practice was discontinued in 2016 and all full-time firefighters moved to the Lindsay station.

Kawartha Lakes also responds to calls in the adjoining municipalities of Trent Lakes and Minden Hills. Fire protection is also purchased from the Bracebridge Fire Department.

HistoryEdit

Kawartha Lakes was formed in 2001 through the amalgamation of all of the municipalities of Victoria County. The fire departments amalgamated were:

Future plansEdit

Kawartha Lakes Council approved a plan that will see a reduction in the number of fire stations from 21 to 19. Little Britain (10) and Oakwood (11) will be consolidated into a single station located partway between the two communities, and Baddow (21) will be closed altogether. The hall in Bethany will also be replaced by a new single-truck building.

    • The Baddow fire hall closed in March 2017.
    • Tenders were approved to build a new two-bay 1372 square foot Bethany station in March 2017.
