Fire Chief Derrick Little
It's been a busy start to the year for the SRFD. We've shared services with the Tweed Fire Department, administration as well as the Chief and Fire Prevention Officer. Chief Derrick Little and FPO Sean Porter have been conducting numerous inspections, fire investigations, and assisting in the development of fire plans.
The SRFD gained six new volunteers this year: Ryan Rogers, Richard Eady, Rob Donaldson, and Cody Brown are added to Station 1, while Rodney Russett and Shane Molloy are added to Station 2. A huge thank you to all of our firefighters that volunteer their time and efforts to helping fight these fires and also to their spouses and families for their dedication and support. Belleville Sport and Lawn's donation of our ATV has greatly assisted us in our ability to combat the many grass and brush fires.
Several members of our department have attended training courses at the Hastings-Prince Edward Mutual Aid Training Facility in Trenton. SRFD volunteers attend weekly training at their respective halls
It is now law that all homes must have carbon monoxide and smoke detectors placed outside all bedrooms and on all levels. These devices should be checked and tested monthly
