About the Aylmer Fire Department

Town Hall Menu

Fire Hall

In April 1872, Aylmer Council passes a by-law for the “establishment of a fire brigade”. The village’s first fire brigade was established in 1874 after two fires in May and June of that year destroyed a number of businesses.

The Fire Department of the Town of Aylmer was established by Council in 1891.

As of 2024, the Department is staffed by a full time Fire Chief, full time Fire Coordinator/Public Educator, a part time Deputy Fire Chief and 2 part time training officers supporting 28 firefighters from our modern station located at 323 John Street South in beautiful Aylmer, Ontario.

The Aylmer Fire Station encompasses a large classroom for training and fire education purposes. It’s a perfect setting for public education presentations, station tours and fire prevention events.
