HARVEY MERCER - FIRE CHIEF
Welcome, my name is Harvey Mercer, Fire Chief for the Town of Upper Island Cove.
This year is the 50th Anniversary of the Upper Island Cove Fire Department!
There are three equally important elements of a Fire Department:
• Emergency Response
• Fire Prevention; and
• Public Education
Each element is critical and represents public safety for our community.
Our Fire Department has a special set of responsibilities and must continue to develop and expand its role within our town, and strive to not only meet, but exceed, expectations in the areas of the three elements noted.
The Upper Island Cove Fire Department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 52 weeks a year, and is fully VOLUNTEER. We have 24 members, and are fully trained in First Response, and Fire Fighting Capabilities, and respond to all medical calls, and are equipped with oxygen and defibrillator on board.
I would like to thank you for your support for the past year, and if you have any concerns regarding Fire prevention, or fire safety please contact any member of the fire department, and we would be glad to assist you.
Yours in Fire Prevention
