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.

Here, you can find answers to a variety of questions involving Norfolk’s ‘Simple Sort’ recycling program.
What is the new two-box recycling program all about?
The County has a new way of setting recyclables at the curb for collection. Instead of separating paper, boxboard and containers inside or beside the current box, the ‘Simple Sort’ system requires that materials be sorted into two separate boxes. All paper products like newspapers, flyers, cereal and tissue boxes, magazines and small corrugated cardboard boxes, plus the bag of plastic bags go into the existing black (or blue) recycling box.
