The Elliot Lake Fire Department was established in 1957 and operated strictly by the Public Works Department using its vehicles, tools and two portable pumps.  The population of Elliot Lake was 32,000. 

Emmett Whelan became the first Fire Chief in the fall of 1957 with 15 volunteers and one pumper.  In 1958, the Fire Department became operational out of a wooden structure on Pine Road.  In 1959 construction of the present fire hall at 55 Hillside Drive North, was completed.

Since then, the Fire Department has evolved in its staff compliment and equipment, as well as the way we respond to and prevent emergencies.
