While Ontario is a safe place to live and work, emergencies can happen anywhere and at anytime. Emergency management in Ontario consists of a system of mutually supportive partnerships coordinated by Emergency Management Ontario.

We all have a role to play in keeping the province safe. Individuals and families should be prepared to take care of themselves for at least 72 hours in the event of an emergency situation. To learn more about how to prepare your family or workplace, please visit Emergency Management Ontario.


Fire Prevention Week (October 4-10, 2020)

Fire Prevention Week BannerFire Prevention Week is observed every year during the week of October 9th.  Each year, communities throughout North America observe Fire Prevention Week to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of October 9, 1871. This tragedy has taught important lessons that have shaped the way fire departments think about fire safety.  At the LaSalle Fire Service, we teach fire safety year round, and especially during Fire Prevention Week, to help prevent the devastation fire can cause.

In previous years, during Fire Prevention Week, the LaSalle Fire Service would host displays, fire station tours, and school visits in the community. Due to COVID-19, Fire Prevention Week 2020 will be brought to you virtually right here on our website and through our social media pages.

Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter for daily fire safety videos created by our very own LaSalle firefighters. We would love it if you would follow along and show us your support by commenting on our posts and sharing our messaging with your family and friends!

LaSalle Fire Takes Measures to Promote Social Distancing While Maintaining Services

March 19, 2020

Due to the challenges and public health restrictions associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), LaSalle Fire Services is temporarily suspending public access to the Fire Station and some non-emergency activities.  These precautions are necessary to promote social distancing, and to ensure the resource capacity of our essential emergency services.

Please be assured there will be no disruption of normal emergency response services.

Residents are asked to contact us by phone or email for routine assistance or inquiries rather than attending the station.  Non-emergency and life-safety matters will continue to be addressed as usual; however, a screening questionnaire will be conducted prior to personal interaction with the public.  Station visits and tours will be suspended until further notice.

Our dedicated team will continue to provide effective public safety and fire protection services while protecting the health and safety of our staff, and your emergency services resources.
