The Petrolia & North Enniskillen Fire Department is a volunteer fire department, which means that our firefighters are coming from their homes and jobs to respond to emergencies. Our firefighters all have green flashing “courtesy lights” in their windshields.

Bought in 2012 from Dependable Emergency Vehicles in Brampton Ontario, this is the departments rescue truck. It responds to most of the calls that Petrolia Fire receives, and can seat 8 firefighters, and carries various equipment used in different emergency scenarios. This is a front line truck.
Pumper 10 is Petrolia Fire’s main firefighting truck. This truck carries approximately 1500 gallons of water, along with hoses, ladders, nozzles, etc. and responds to all fire calls. Pumper 10 was bought in 2005, from Metalfab Limited in Centreville, New Brunswick. This is a front line truck.
This is the departments ladder truck. This truck responds to most fire calls in town, as well as fires in other towns, since a few of the departments in the area don’t have ladder trucks. Ladder 9 was bought in 1996 from Nova-Quintech (which has since shut down), and is going to be replaced sometime in the new year. This is a front line truck.
Tanker 6 is the largest tanker truck in the County of Lambton. This truck can carry approximately 3300 gallons of water, two porta-tanks, and two firefighters. This truck responds to fires that aren’t in town, as well as car accidents (to be used as a blocker truck). This truck was bought in 1995 from Robica-Forman Limited. This is a front line truck.
Service 11 is more than just a primary response vehicle, it is also used on a daily basis by the departments chief. During regular office hours, it is the first truck to respond, but after hours its one of the last to respond. This truck is a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. This is a front line truck.
S.O.R.T. Emergency Response Vehicle
The Support Operations Response Team vehicle is a retired Lambton EMS ambulance, and is used in a variety of different scenarios. This is the departments rehabilitation truck, and it also goes to large public events as a first aid station. This vehicle is a 2002 Demers ambulance built on a Ford chassis-cab. This is a front line tuck, but is not used as often as the others.
Engine 2 (Antique)
Engine 2 is Petrolia Fire’s antique truck, used in parades and for large public events as a show vehicle. This truck is the second motorized ever owned by the department, and was built in 1946 by Bickle-Seagrave Fire Apparatus Limited on a 3-ton Chevrolet chassis-cab. This is not a front line truck.
