This section is typically responsible for fire protection services that are provided directly to fire departments and local officials by the OFC.

These include fire prevention  & education information,  response pre-planning, guidance and liaison to fire departments and local officials , and conducting fire investigations.

Working throughout the province, the section coordinates the OFC and provincial fire protection strategies and its emergency response services.  Those emergency response services includes the following services provided at the site of an emergency or a disaster:

  • fire suppression
  • security and policing;
  • emergency medical care;
  • search and rescue;
  • hazardous materials response.

An important component of the OFC’s response capability is the coordination and provision of incident command at larger emergencies.
