Fire Department

The Township of Alnwick/Haldimand has three (3) district area Volunteer Fire Stations. These Stations provide fire protection services to the residents and visitors of the Municipality. The Stations are located in Grafton, Centreton and Roseneath.

The Alnwick/Haldimand Fire Rescue also provide Fire Protection Services to Alderville First Nation under the provisions of the mutually signed Agreement between the Band Council of Alderville First Nation and the Council of the Township of Alnwick/Haldimand.

Mutual Aid Services are provided by the part-time, on-call Fire Departments when needed. Mutual Aid Services allows Alnwick/Haldimand Fire Rescue to provide help to or get help from another participating municipality.


Within our Township, volunteer firefighters use their own vehicles to travel to our halls when responding to emergency calls. These vehicles are sometimes equipped with flashing green lights that our volunteers will use to notify other drivers on the road that they are on route to an emergency.

Volunteers often respond to calls that require a fair distance of travel, in an emergency, sometimes it can be mere seconds that makes a difference in the outcome. The green light system is a proactive measure to help notify residents that the vehicle is responding to a call and if possible, allow them to pass and helping contribute to a quicker response time to the scene.

Volunteer firefighters traveling to an emergency have to abide by the Highway Traffic Act, meaning that they can not speed or drive through red lights. This tool is something that is used by volunteers across Ontario to help encourage drivers to be courteous and yield the right-of-way, allowing the vehicle to pass where and when it safe to do so.

“Flashing Green Light” signage is installed in our community to help spread awareness and clarity on the meaning behind the lights. The Township of Alnwick/Haldimand  Fire Department encourages all residents to help spread the word to those who are unaware or who have never seen the lights before.
