Norfolk County is divided into 11 fire districts. These districts are based on the principle of providing the appropriate fire or rescue service in the best possible time frame. Each fire district is serviced by a fire station. Fire stations vary in size and capability according to the fire protection and rescue needs of the fire district. The fire districts do not operate independently since all operations are coordinated through a common fire dispatch centre and it is very common for firefighters and fire apparatus to respond from more than one station to an incident, depending on the need. All fire stations are staffed by volunteer firefighters. Norfolk County has 242 volunteer firefighters. Fire stations are managed by a District Chief with the assistance of a Deputy, Captains, and various specialty ranks. The Fire Department meets its Federal, Provincial, and Municipal mandates through the skilled and dedicated efforts of Administration, Programs, Enforcement, and Operations staff. The Department has organized these activities into a number of Bureaus and Districts for management convenience.
Norfolk County recruiting for Volunteer Firefighters is open. More information is provided on the page “Becoming a Volunteer Firefighter”. Recruiting takes place once a year beginning in June.
Norfolk County does have a Burn Permit and By-Law that regulates the setting of fires in Norfolk County.
