Welcome to the North River Fire Brigade

The first meeting of the North River Fire Brigade was held on March 8 1972 in the old school house in North River. At the meeting Ed Franklin was voted in as the Brigades first Fire Chief.


Our mission is to provide a safe, professional and courteous team that strives to exceed the expectations of the community and our organization. This mission requires our members to be part of a capable, aggressive, a fire brigade that is focused on “Preserving Life and Property" of those we serve. Through our members we shall respond to a wide variety of Fire, Rescue and Medical Emergency calls in a timely manner.


We strive to commit ourselves to excellence and professional accountability through technology, training and by adapting to the changing needs of our society. We seek to remain respected by our community by predicting and responding to their ever-changing needs. We are dedicated to the delivery of effective fire suppression activities, rescue services, and quality fire/safety education to the public. We endeavor to offer the best available education and training to our members.
