Custodial history

Original paper reports from Acc. 2013-11 were forwarded to the Archives from the Fire Department many years ago, were microfilmed on receipt and the paper documents were then destroyed. These rolls have been stored in the Archives for many years prior to accessioning. The rolls are numbered from #1 to #120. There is no Roll #7 as that roll was used for other fire records. These reports date from 1970 to 1997. A decision was then made to retain the paper reports and no longer microfilm them. Commencing with reports dated January 1, 1998, up to and including January 31, 2000, there are paper records only.

Scope and content

Thunder Bay became a City on January 1, 1970 as a result of the amalgamation of two cities - Port Arthur and Fort William, and two townships - McIntyre and Neebing. Thunder Bay Fire Rescue (formerly known as the Thunder Bay Fire Department, Thunder Bay Fire Service) was created at the same time. Currently, it operates from eight fire stations and responds to fires, explosions, auto extrications and hazardous material spills. It also specializes in rescues involving industrial accidents, rappelling, water/ice and confined space.

This series includes fire reports from the Office of the Fire Marshal for the years 1979, 1990 and 1992 and an Inspection Report of the Fort William Gardens dated Dec. 1992, Jan. 1993. Along with the above mentioned records, this series also includes fire report work sheets, including second response work sheets, station logs, notice of dangerous situation carbon monoxide alarm emergency, ambulance assist, vehicle fire reports, fire reports - refuse/grass/muskeg or bush fires, emergency reports (minor incidents), internation/external narratives, standard incident reports, alarm/detection/suppression device reports, emergency reports (major incident), contacts report and fire event reports.
