From the Chief's Desk

Welcome to the North Perth Fire Department information centre. The North Perth Fire Department became a single operation with 3 stations in October 2001. Prior to amalgamation, the 3 stations operated independently as the Elma Township Fire Department, Elma Logan Fire Department and the Listowel Fire Department.

The fire service in North Perth has worked very hard and tirelessly to provide the citizens of North Perth with the most cost effective, trained and equipped personnel possible. I am very proud, as you should be, of our volunteer firefighters who have shown their dedication and professionalism on many occasions when the call for service has been answered.

We, the members of the department, operate under the direction of the Fire Protection and Prevention Act and the legislation which governs us as well as direction given by Municipal Council.

The North Perth Fire Department strives to meet the 3 lines of defense as directed by the Office of the Fire Marshal:

  1. Public Fire Safety Education
  2. Fire Prevention Inspections and Fire Code Enforcement under the Ontario Fire Code
  3. Emergency Fire Response

I hope you take time to look through our website and understand the importance of fire safety and what our department is all about.
