Home > From The Chief > It’s a new year

On behalf of staff and the 242 firefighters, I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are ready for the new year.  Accomplishments in 2016 included updating the burn by-law, yearly emergency management provincial compliance, and transitioning from the OFM to NFPA training requirements to name a few.  In 2017, and in addition to our successful Fire Prevention and Fire Safety Education initiatives, Norfolk County Fire & Rescue Services will continue to develop our new recruits through our Joint Training Action Group and provide online and practical training for our officers and officer candidates.  In addition, we will utilize our Emergency Preparedness Educators to deliver emergency preparedness information to our many partnerships as well as the established grade 4 program.

Please take the time to check your smoke and CO alarms, create a home fire safety plan, and never leave the stove unattended.

Terry
