Fire Services

The North Middlesex Fire Department is served by a volunteer fire department consisting of 50 dedicated volunteers, with fire stations located in both Ailsa Craig and Parkhill as well as two areas covered by Fire Protection Agreements with the Arkona Fire Department and Lucan-Biddulph Fire Department.

As of December 1, 2014, William Davidson has been appointed as the Fire Chief / Health & Safety Coordinator for North Middlesex. Scott Jones is the District Fire Chief for the Ailsa Craig Station and Greg Vandenheuval is the District Fire Chief for the Parkhill Station.
