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.
