Stations

The Town of Milton continues to be identified as one of Canada’s fastest growing communities. As a result of this continual growth, infrastructure within the Town continues to be expanded and upgraded to meet both current and forecasted demands. The Town’s Fire Department currently operates from four fire stations and is in the design process for a fifth. As existing facilities are upgraded and new locations constructed an emphasis to assess the feasibility of co-location with other partners and multi-purpose facilities is a priority.

Station No. 1 Fire Training Centre,
405 Steeles Ave, Milton

Fire Station No.1 was built in 1977 and until 2012, functioned as the Central Fire Station and Headquarters. With the construction of a new headquarters in 2012 this site has been further developed to incorporate a Fire Training Centre. The training facilities provide diverse training options for both new recruit fire fighters and experienced staff. Training and educational activities are critical for Fire Fighter safety and enhanced skill development in providing effective and efficient services to the community.

 A major rehabilitation of Fire Station No.1 began in spring 2018 and is anticipated to take a year to complete. The project includes a full lateral analysis of the main existing structure, bringing up to current code all of the structural, mechanical and electrical systems, as well as fire, plumbing, accessibility and building envelope.

 The main functional areas of the building include an apparatus bay that houses fire trucks and equipment, training areas contain a large divisible room to accommodate concurrent sessions and a simulation control room for the most current interactive and virtual reality training initiatives, office area for the training and operations divisions, and fire fighter quarters, day area and meeting rooms.

Fire Station No.5 and Halton Paramedic Services Station No.17                                                               

7825 and 7815 Louis St. Laurent Avenue, Milton

A report adopted by Halton Region, titled “Emergency Medical Services (EMS) 10-Year Master Plan”, identified service gaps in areas throughout Halton. The analysis in the report projected future growth related gap areas, including south Milton. One of the recommendations identified within the Mater Plan was for Halton Region to continue to explore options for co-location with other Regional or local Municipal facilities.

Within the scope of the future growth in the Town of Milton the need for an additional fire station was also identified for south Milton in order to provide fire protection services in that growing area of the Town. 

Halton Region and Town of Milton have engaged in a joint collaborative effort to build a new facility providing both paramedic and fire protection services. With forecasted growth in south Milton, a 1.5 acre parcel of land just west of Regional Road 25 along Louis St. Laurent Avenue at Diefenbaker Street has been chosen as the location for the new station. The Paramedic Services Station No.17 will be 4,400 square feet and Fire Station No.5 will be 8,500 for a total building envelope of 12,900 square feet
