MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Kingston Fire Department is to voluntarily provide a range of programs designed to protect the lives and property of the inhabitants within our district from the adverse effects of fires, medical emergencies and exposure to other dangerous conditions.


VISION

To serve our district by maintaining a progressively equipped, professional fire department with a commitment to excellence.


FROM THE FIRE CHIEF

The Villages of Kingston and Greenwood are strong vibrant and growing communities – we have seen unprecedented growth in commercial and residential development in the past decade. Our District is seeing increased development and new housing, with hundreds of new residents moving here each year.

That kind of growth brings its own unique challenges. The Kingston District Fire Department tackles these challenges with a creative, modern approach that embraces best practices, evidence-based decision-making, long-range planning, and cooperation between departments and agencies.

Our initiatives have included:
• Expanding our membership to sixty members, one of the largest in the Annapolis Valley.
• Reducing residential fires through education programs.
• More efficient deployment of apparatus through improved training.
• Establishing Standard Operating Procedures and new firefighter training programs.
• Acquiring the best apparatus and equipment to serve the people of the district while ensuring firefighter safety.
• Fostering a close working relationship with RCMP, Emergency Health Services, 14 Wing, neighboring Fire Departments and,
• Constantly improving responses to any emergency through research and best practices.
