The 2018 Middlesex County Resident Life Survey is Live and We Want to Hear from You!
Welcome to the 2018 Middlesex County Resident Life Survey!   The purpose of this survey is to learn more about the people currently living in Middlesex County. This information will enable community groups, such as volunteer organizations and your municipal government, to better assist you with their policy and resources. There will be questions about your reasons for living here, what makes this location special to you, and the ways in which you are engaging with your community. This short survey has been prepared by Middlesex County in partnership with Western University and should only take around five minutes to complete. This survey is anonymous; no personally identifiable information will be collected. Thank you for your participation and valuable contribution.

Fire Services

Southwest Middlesex has been kept informed by Strathroy-Caradoc about resignations of firefighters from the Melbourne Fire Station.  The fire station in Melbourne provides initial response protection to a number of residences in the municipality of Southwest Middlesex under a fire protection agreement between the two municipalities.

While there is currently no operational reason to question the reliability of the fire service in Melbourne, to allay any concerns of residents and businesses in the Melbourne community, including the SWM fire protection area, there is a two station response for any emergency scene.  As per the normal practice, an alarm for a structure fire will dispatch the volunteer firefighters from the Glencoe Fire Station.

Should there be any concerns, please contact SWM Fire Chief Bob Hansen @ 519-494-1166 for more information.
