Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency (HRFE) and the Enfield Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD) are pleased to announce that we have signed a new agreement between our respective fire services and will continue to work together to provide emergency services to our communities.
What is happening right now?
Throughout the negotiations, both parties agreed that there would be no changes made to emergency response protocols or to the dispatch services provided by the municipality to EVFD. As a result, citizens of Enfield will see no change to emergency service as the agreement is implemented. This renewed agreement will see the ongoing improvement of service delivery through closer working relationships, shared professional development, training opportunities and the development of common practices, policies, and procedures.
In what area will EVFD respond?
The renewed agreement will see EVFD supported by HRFE
resources continue to provide emergency response to portions of Fire District 4 (Enfield, Grand Lake, Goffs). EVFD will be the primary response agency within the yellow areas located between Halifax Stanfield International Airport and the Enfield border.
This includes the Highway corridor between Exit 6 and 7, with east and west boundaries as follows:
• Highway 2 to civic address 6367
• Oldham Road up to civic address 718
Outside of these response areas, both fire services may request the assistance of each other through Mutual Aid request.
