Municipality of the District of Chester
Fire & Emergency Response

More than one third of Canadians use fireplaces, wood stoves and other fuel-fired appliances as  heating sources in their homes. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the fire risks when heating with wood and solid fuels.

Everyday Canadians experience the horror of fire. But most people don't really understand it. Only when we know the true nature of fire can we prepare ourselves and our families.  

" an Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure "


As part of our service to the community we continue to offer information on Fire Safety and Prevention. The old saying of " an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure "  is very true when it comes to keeping your family safe. 

This section on Fire Prevention provides information on the recognition and removal of fire hazards to help reduce the occurrence of fire related emergencies in The Municipality of the District of Chester.

You'll find many fire safety and fire prevention tips that can help lessen the potential for a fire in your home, school or workplace. Additional web links are provided if you would like to have more information.

Our Fire Chiefs and department members are most willing to provide assistance and answer any questions you may have. Please contact us if you have a question or require more information.

We encourage you to review and utilize the Fire Prevention and Safety Information provided. Keep yourself, your family and your property safe from fire.
