Fire Department of North Huron (FDNH)

On January 1, 2010 the Fire Department of North Huron began operation providing full fire protection services to the residents of North Huron.  Operating from two stations, one in Blyth (40193 Blyth Road) and one in Wingham (369 Josephine Street), the FDNH is comprised of a full time chief, a part time fire prevention officer, and 42 paid on call firefighters.

The departments formation is the result of the dissolution of the former Blyth and District Fire Board and the Wingham and Area Fire Board and their two respective fire departments.  The Blyth and District Fire Department has a proud history of serving the Blyth Community and the surrounding area.  The Wingham and Area Fire Department was originally formed in the late 1880's as the Redcross Hose and Fire Company.  The long traditions of serving the community from these two fire services has been carried into the new fire service.  

In an emergency you can contact the department by dialing 9-1-1.  The department's administration can be reached by calling 226-523-9500
