Community Fire Protection

Standard Equipment Guide

This guidance document was developed to assist community fire departments with identifying the minimum equipment required for a Standard – Level 2 Defensive fire service as defined in MACA’s Community Fire Protection Matrix.

It is recommended that community fire departments develop a program in compliance with NWT safety legislation and recognized standards for the selection, care, use and maintenance of protective firefighting ensembles, fire apparatus, and support equipment. 

For further information or assistance with identifying equipment and program needs for your fire department, please contact your Regional Assistant Fire Marshal.
