Fire Station 3 Closure

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

An information night is being held at the Douro Community Centre, located at 2893 Highway 28 at County Road 4 on December 19th at 6:30pm, 2016. If you cannot attend, but have questions about this please don’t hesitate to contact me at 705 652-8392 x 207 or email.

Free Radon Test Kits Available at Peterborough Public Health

Peterborough Public Health had made a supply of Radon test kits for local residents conveniently available throughout the County. This supply of kits has now run out and the kits are now available at Peterborough Public Health located at 185 King Street in Peterborough.

Radon causes between 1,080 and 1,550 cancer cases in Ontario each year. The gas is colourless and odourless and can build up without the homeowner noticing.

The test requires the homeowner to place the kit in the lowest lived-in level of your home and leave it there for three months. Afterwards, the test is mailed away to the lab where the results will be returned to you. The kits include the shipping fee.

For more information, please contact Peterborough Public Health at 705-743-1000 or visit their website.
