Fire Chief's Welcome Message

On behalf of the professional men and women of the Woodstock Fire Department, I welcome you to our section of the City of Woodstock website. We have proudly served our community since 1881 with a commitment to professionalism in all we do.

Through utilization of the three lines of defence (Public Education, Fire Safety Standards and Enforcement, and Emergency Response) we teach our community how to be fire safe, ensure facilities are meeting minimum Code requirements, and attend calls for assistance when the need arises. Our goal is to provide the highest level of service in the most efficient manner possible; to constantly safeguard and preserve life and property against the elements of fire and disaster through effective preparation, training, and education; and to respond to all emergencies in a safe yet swift manner.

I invite you to move through the pages of our section and learn more about us. You will have the opportunity to learn more about us as a Department, and what you can do to live in a fire safe community.
