The Bridgetown Volunteer Fire Department is located in the beautiful community of Bridgetown, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Set in the Annapolis Valley, Bridgetown is framed by the North Mountain and South Mountain ranges. These mountain ranges are part of the Appalachians and were created by volcanic activity. This led to today's nutrient rich soil ideal for farming and agriculture, one of the main industries in the area today.
The BVFD protects 640 square kilometres of the Annapolis Valley, which includes approximately 4500 people in over 1600 homes, businesses, churches and schools. We respond to an average of 95 emergency calls a year. These calls can include structural fires, wild land fires and motor vehicle collisions. We provide mutual aid to neighbouring departments when requested and respond to medical emergencies when requested by Emergency Health Services.
