History of the South Dumfries Fire Department
Since Then

In 1981, the village of St. George came under the administration of the South Dumfries Township. At that time, the St. George Fire Department became known as the South Dumfries Fire Department.

Today the Fire Department is equipped with modern fire fighting equipment as well as an ambulance. A new Fire Hall was built in 1962 to replace the old building, which became too small for modern fire equipment.
Listed below are some of the known Fire Chiefs who have served at the St. George Fire Department:

Vern Gofton
Hero Tolhurst
Fred Wheat
Earl Monkhouse
Jack Kay
