Surrey Fire Service
The Surrey Fire Service (SFS) is the first on scene at residential and commercial structure fires, motor vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, hazardous materials incidents and technical rescue calls.
When dealing with emergencies, we believe the best course of action is to prevent these emergencies from happening, which is why you’ll find us working with the community to promote home and personal fire safety.
Safe Summer Barbequing
Barbequing is a common cause of burns and exterior fires which have the potential to spread to nearby buildings or surrounding objects such as trees or shrubs.
Whether using a barbeque in the yard, on a balcony, or at the park, the Surrey Fire Service is encouraging everyone to grill safely this summer season.
