The Township of Douro-Dummer and the Township of Selwyn have entered into an automatic aid, fire response agreement. This agreement is scheduled to come into effect on January 10, 2017.
Staff believes that this new agreement will provide a better overall service to our residents. This new agreement will also close Douro-Dummer Fire Station #3, located at 1612 Fifth Line of Douro. The Township of Selwyn will be responding to this designated area from either their Lakefield Fire Station or Young’s Point Fire Station. An automatic aid agreement is designed to send help from the closest fire station, but not intended to deliver the service in absence of the home fire department. All areas of the Township of Douro-Dummer will continue to be responded to by the home fire department as well.
Our Township has the same type of agreements for a geographical area that is closer to the Norwood Fire Station as well as an area closer to the Havelock Fire Station. Our Township also provides this type of agreement service to Otonabee-South Monaghan and Havelock-Belmont-Methuen
