New fire crew enhances community safety

Posted on Wednesday January 02, 2019

The Milton Fire Department recently welcomed five new full-time firefighters, approved last year as part of Milton’s 2018 Budget. The new crew will initially be stationed at Fire Station No. 4 and move to Fire Station No. 1 when construction is completed in 2019.

The additional full-time crew will provide an enhanced level of service to the community, especially during the peak hours of 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. when the Milton Fire Department receives upwards of 65 per cent of its calls for service.

“I’m pleased to welcome our new full-time crew to the Milton Fire Department family,” said Milton Fire Chief Dave Pratt. “Our firefighters are passionate about safeguarding our community, and the new crew enhances our level of service to Miltonians.”
