Our Volunteers Work Hard to Protect You!  



The Southwest Middlesex Fire Department is made-up of trained volunteers who do a tremendous job of promoting public fire safety and of protecting your lives and the property of our community.  Our volunteers are dedicated to responding to 9-1-1 calls for fire, carbon monoxide, vehicular accidents and medical situations as quickly as possible.

We have two stations serving the municipality - please note that our stations are not staffed on a regular basis:
  • Glencoe Station, 71 Main Street, Glencoe ON  N0L 1M0
  • Wardsville Station, 1784 Longwoods Road, Wardsville  ON  N0L 2N0                         

Control Burn/Open Burning

  • Have regard to the Open Air Burning by-law #75/2001 before starting any fires so that you avoid unnecessary fines and/or charges.  If you have a control burn situation please call dispatch at 519-245-1300 or 1-844-220-1300 before lighting.  Please note that dispatch does not approve the burning they just record that you have reported that you have started a fire that you have complete control of.
