Timmins Fire Hall Doors Open Timmins-Porcupine

Timmins Fire Hall

The Timmins Fire Hall was built in 1957 to replace the old station that was adjacent to the Municipal Building on Algonquin Blvd. Porcupine established its first organized fire department shortly after the Great Fire of 1911. This tragic fire destroyed the mining settlement and took more than 70 lives. During Digital Doors Open, learn more about the fire hall by exploring the photo archive from the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre, and read more about the department’s history on the City of Timmins website. The jurisdiction of this hall’s fire chief includes six other fire halls: Mountjoy, South Porcupine, Schumacher, Whitney, Connaught and Victor M. Power Airport. Watch the video below to see their firefighters in training!
