Fire-Rescue Department History

On February 9, 1998, the Grand Bay Volunteer Fire Department Inc. and the Westfield Volunteer Fire Department officially merged into one Department.

This followed the Province’s amalgamation of the Town of Grand Bay and the Village of Westfield on January 1, 1998. The members of both Departments looked at the two Departments merging positively and began training and working together as early as November 1997.
