Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services (MFES) provides fire fighting service for the city of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

The Fire Service was established in 1968 and formed from local departments (Port Credit, Cooksville, Lakeview, Malton, Meadowvale) that existed prior to the creation of Mississauga, Ontario. MFES was mainly made up of the Toronto Township Volunteer Fire Department, itself created from volunteer units in the 1870s. By 1975, Mississauga's fire service was a full-time service.

Mississauga Fire co-ordinates with Toronto Fire Services, Brampton Fire & Emergency Services, and Peel Regional Paramedics for additional help and practicing emergency disaster exercises.

Fleet[edit]

Mississauga Fire operates a number of aerial units due to the growth of high rise condos and offices in the city.

The city has a hazmat crew that augments a similar unit created by Peel Region's Emergency Preparedness Program. It was likely created from the Mississauga train derailment in 1979.
