HistoryEdit

In 1935, Windsor annexed three surrounding towns, expanding its territory and population significantly. WFD also saw a considerable expansion, adding the stations and apparatus of the East Windsor Fire Department, Sandwich Fire Department and Walkerville Fire Department.

In 1966, further annexations added the former Riverside Fire Department station on Lauzon Road and the Sandwich West Township Fire Department station on Third Concession Road.
