Meet the Fire Chief

Fire Chief Dave Sutton

Message from the Chief

On behalf of all the members of the LaSalle Fire Service (LFS) who are dedicated to making LaSalle a fire-safe community, we would like to welcome you to the LFS website. We are confident that the information provided will familiarize you with the wide variety of services and educational opportunities offered by our combined full-time, and paid-on-call, or "volunteer" staff. Our service to the community has changed and evolved over time. From a primarily fire suppression response service, to a progressive "all-hazards" emergency response and public education organization. We are responsive to the needs of our growing and evolving community and the families and businesses that call LaSalle home.

As a front-line service delivery organization, we are extremely proud of the professionalism and dedication of all of our staff. With the continued support of our municipal council and senior management team, LaSalle firefighters are provided the highest quality, provincially recognized training, in fire suppression and other rescue and emergency response specialty areas.

Our community fire safety strategy is based on three main components.

  1. Public fire safety education
  2. Pro-active fire prevention inspections and enforcement of fire code requirements
  3. Emergency Response and Fire Suppression

We hope that this website will assist you in becoming more aware of our efforts in these three areas; and most importantly, the fire safety measures you can take to protect your family and property. I encourage you to contact any of our staff with any fire safety questions or concerns.
