They also answer and dispatch calls for surrounding communities such as Round Lake, King Kirkland, McGarry Township, and Larder Lake. Lastly, the division runs fire prevention programs such as the TAPP-C for juvenile fire starters in concert with the Boreal Centre, the Learn Not to Burn curriculum, and the Older and Wiser programs in the separate and public schools.

The Division consists of a Fire Chief, four Platoon Chiefs and six full time fire fighters, and 43 part time fire fighters (normally referred to as Volunteers). There are two fire stations: Station #l is the Headquarters Station, located at 8 O'Meara Boulevard in Kirkland Lake; and Station #2, located on Government Road in Swastika. Primary equipment includes three pumpers, one quintuple combination aerial truck, a rescue van, and a chief's truck.
