The City of Saskatoon has been monitoring and actively engaged in assessing the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and is in close contact with provincial and federal health agencies.

News & Information

This will extend our ability to post operational updates on situations, and in turn will allow the Saskatoon Fire Department to provide current and relevant communications to the public in a timely manner.

Emergency Services

The Fire Department offers fire suppression services and more. We also provide fire safety inspections, emergency preparedness training, and community outreach.

History of SFD

Saskatoon was founded as a Temperance Colony in 1882. As Saskatoon grew through the first three decades it went from reservoirs, buckets and horses to its first piece of motorized apparatus in a unionized professional department in 1909.

Inspections & Investigations

The Saskatoon Fire Department provides fire prevention inspections and post-fire investigations. Find out more about what to do to prevent fires, and what to do in the aftermath of a fire.


Unusual, or large, emergencies caused by extreme weather or man-made events can happen at any time. Now, when an impending or escalating emergency happens, whether it be city-wide or area specific, Saskatoon is ready to respond.

Should an emergency situation arise in our city, be it severe weather, a dangerous goods spill, a pandemic, or an airline crash, a range of agencies must pull together to provide a coordinated response.
