Clarington Emergency and Fire Services PatchClarington Emergency and Fire Services are an integral part of the community. Our first responders provide an essential service protecting and helping residents. Our fire crews are also out in the community helping to educate residents about safety and fire prevention.

Preparing for an emergency is something all residents should do. By taking a few simple steps today, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies and look after your family anytime and anywhere.

Clarington's Emergency and Fire Services, along with our partners, come together annually for our Family Safety Day to share safety tips with you. We also run a popular Junior Firefighter Program for children aged 10 and 11.

New laws are introduced to improve public safety and the safety of emergency responders.

Remember: Fire safety begins with you.

History

In 1974, Clarke and Darlington Townships merged as a result of regional amalgamation. They formed the Town of Newcastle. The three local fire departments also joined and formed the Town of Newcastle Fire Department. Since that time, the department has evolved and grown into a composite fire service, made up of both full-time and volunteer or part-time firefighters.

Today, Clarington Emergency and Fire Services operate from five fire stations. Two additional stations were built as the community expanded, one in Courtice in 1979 and the other in Enniskillen in 1989.
