Fire Services

Southwest Middlesex has been kept informed by Strathroy-Caradoc about resignations of firefighters from the Melbourne Fire Station.  The fire station in Melbourne provides initial response protection to a number of residences in the municipality of Southwest Middlesex under a fire protection agreement between the two municipalities.

While there is currently no operational reason to question the reliability of the fire service in Melbourne, to allay any concerns of residents and businesses in the Melbourne community, including the SWM fire protection area, there is a two station response for any emergency scene.  As per the normal practice, an alarm for a structure fire will dispatch the volunteer firefighters from the Glencoe Fire Station.

Should there be any concerns, please contact SWM Fire Chief Bob Hansen @ 519-494-1166 for more information.
