Suppression / Operations

The Suppression/Operations division responds from six neighborhood fire stations, staffed 7 days a week with per diem apparatus operators from 8 AM until 5 PM. The call company members respond from home, work or anywhere to perform fire/rescue duties. Between the hours of 5 PM and 8 AM, the call company members respond to the station to drive the apparatus to the scene.

Our call company members are dedicated town residents that have undertaken the task of being trained to respond to any type of emergency. They are supervised by a call company captain, and the call company deputy fire chiefs. Our per diem apparatus operators are experienced Scarborough call company members or career firefighters from other communities that work part time in our six fire stations. They are supervised by the on duty paramedic lieutenant, and the operations deputy fire chief.

This form was designed and is intended for personal use by all Scarborough Fire Department members to track the incidents they respond to where they may be exposed to cancer causing agents/chemicals during the normal performance of their duties.  It is a fillable form that you can use to document the incident and print a copy for your personal exposure records.  You may also submit a copy of the completed form and we will include it in your personnel file for you.
