About The Department

The Summerville & District Fire Department first formed in 1963 following a community meeting which was called by Rev. Robert Childs. Rev. Childs called the meeting following a structure fire in the village to see if there was enough community interest in forming a fire department and so the Summerville & District Volunteer Fire Department was born.

The Department has come a long way since 1963, when our only means of fighting fire was a portable pump and a few lengths of hose and a lot of dedicated hard working men and women. The department continues to provide fire protection to the citizens of Ctr. / Lr. Burlington, Cogmagun, Riverside, Summerville, Kempt Shore, Cheverie, Bramber and mutual aid to neighbouring communities. The Department has approx 30 men and women volunteers who continually train to maintain and upgrade the much needed skills that are required of them in the ever changing fire service. The Summerville Fire Department not only provides fire fighting services, but also rescue in the form of Medical First Response, Motor Vehicle extrication, Ice & Water Rescue. The Department responds to nearly 100 calls per year.
