Fire Department

Dispatched via the Provincial 911 system, we are a paid call fire service with a complement of 36 front line firefighters; trained to Level I and II Firefighter; NFPA 1001 – Standard for Professional Firefighter Qualifications.

The Dauphin Fire Department serves the citizens of both the City and Rural Municipality of Dauphin covering an approximate area of 1,036 square kilometers and a population of 10,504 (2021 Census).  We respond to incidents in the City and surrounding municipality including fires (of any type), motor vehicle collisions, rescues, water rescue as well as basic hazardous materials calls.  The Dauphin Fire Department works closely with the members of the Sifton Fire Department located approximately 30 kilometers north of the City of Dauphin.

The history of the Dauphin Fire Department goes all the way back to 1901 when the first organized Fire Brigade was established. The first piece of apparatus was a horse drawn pump, which was sold after the Town of Dauphin purchased its first motorized piece of firefighting apparatus, a 1917 Chevrolet 490. The 1917, along with a 1936 Pumper, have been restored by the Firefighter’s Association and hold a special place of distinction as showpieces of the Department.

Our Firefighter’s Association performs many volunteer duties to raise donations from the community, with which they purchase much needed equipment and donate back to the Fire Department.

The Dauphin Fire Department is also involved throughout the year in Public Education, Fire and Life Safety Inspections, and Pre-Incident Planning.  If you require any additional information regarding the services we provide, or just have a general inquiry, please feel free contact us.

Thank you for visiting and have a safe day!
