Green Lights


When emergencies happen, the on-call, professional firefighters of Middlesex Centre are ready to respond at any moment.

Help our firefighters get to their emergency calls quickly and safely. Our firefighters flash green lights in the front of their personal vehicles when they are responding to an emergency. If you "see green" pull over if it is safe to do so, and let our firefighters pass!

 

Open Air Burning


Status: No burn bans at this time.

Middlesex Centre has a by-law that outlines the conditions under which open air burning is allowed.  The quick guide below can help you make sure you are following the guidelines - and keeping yourself and your family safe!

Fireworks


COVID-19 Update: Unfortunately, based on federal and provincial direction as applicable to gatherings, and the increased risk to our fire fighters, NO display fireworks events will be approved until further notice.

Middlesex Centre has a fireworks by-law that outlines how and when fireworks are permitted to be discharged. There are different rules for two categories of fireworks: consumer and display.

Please review the fireworks guides and make sure you are following the regulations to keep yourself, your family and the community safe!

You do not require a special permit to discharge this type of fireworks. Note that consumer fireworks are only allowed on Canada Day and Victoria Day. If you wish to discharge fireworks at any other time you must apply for an exemption.
