Redefining fire: the Evolving Role of Fire Departments in Canada.


It is our pleasure to present a CAFC report entitled “Redefining fire: the Evolving Role of Fire Departments in Canada". This report puts in words, many of our experiences in a rapidly changing and evolving sector. Our goal is simply to do what we do best, avert, plan for, and if necessary, respond to the changing pressures of the future.


We have much to be proud of, however we also have much to consider as we look ahead. Our goal in

presenting this report is to help administrators, policy makers, and members of the public who are less versed in what we do, take stock of the current status of the sector and what is needed.


By drawing on case studies and advice from members across all provinces and territories, and across

all types of departments, we have tried to put evidence behind the anecdote.


We hope you will find this report interesting. Our thanks to the members of the Redefining FireCommittee, to Winnipeg District Chief Don Enns who held the pen, and to our reviewers for their helpful comments on this paper. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact CAFC’s Executive Director, Dr. Tina Saryeddine, at Thank you for your support of our sector. We look forward to discussing these issues further together.
