Fire Department RecruitmentHuntsville Lake of Bays Fire Department logo with Canada flag in centre of badge

Thank you for your interest in joining the Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department. 

The Department consists of six stations based in Huntsville, Port Sydney and throughout Lake of Bays.  Responses include fires, medical emergencies, hazardous materials (HAZMAT), rescues and other emergencies.

Firefighting presents many challenges and you must be physically and mentally prepared to respond to emergencies and life-threatening situations.  Our department focuses on a diverse program of training, public education and fitness.

Did you know?

Being a firefighter can be rewarding but it also requires a strong commitment to the department and to the community.

This is Ross, a physical education teacher.  Greg, a contractor. And Jen a business owner and mother. They all work their jobs during regular hours and in the off hours they help their community by fighting fires and promoting public safety.
