As the Deputy Chiefs of the Truro Volunteer Fire Brigade and Truro Fire Service, we welcome you to our website.

The Truro Volunteer Fire Brigade is located in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada, and provides volunteer fire and emergency services to the citizens of Truro and neighboring Millbrook.

The Truro Fire Brigade (TFB) was formed in 1868 and took on the title of the Truro Volunteer Fire Brigade (TVFB) in 2001 as part of the town of Truro's realignment of emergency services and the creation of the Truro Fire Service.

Together with Fire Chief Blois Currie, we provide direction and leadership to the Truro Fire Service, which comprises approximately 30 volunteers (TVFB) and 15 career firefighters (IAFF Local 1627). It also includes an active fire prevention and investigation unit under the direction of Fire Inspector Chisling. Together, we handle many types of emergencies, including structure fires, medical assists, hazmat incidents, motor vehicle collisions with the jaws of life, ice water and swift water rescue, and provide mutual aid to surrounding departments.

In addition to our incident command, support, planning, and guidance role within the emergency services level of the Truro Fire Service, we also oversee the day-to-day functions and administration of the Truro Volunteer Fire Brigade. We take extreme pride in our duties and responsibilities and are proud of the outstanding service the volunteer and career members provide to the citizens of Truro and Millbrook.

We invite you to take some time to browse our site, learn about our history, our members, and our current projects. If you reside in Truro and neighboring Millbrook and are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, we welcome you to visit the recruitment section or stop by the station at 165 Victoria Street to pick up an application. Please check back often for updates.
