HistoryEdit

In 1998, the Townships of Ennismore and Smith were amalgamated to form the new Township of Smith-Ennismore, merging the Ennismore Township Fire Department and Smith Township Fire Department. In 2001, the Village of Lakefield was added to the municipality, and with it, the Lakefield Fire Department. The municipality was renamed again as Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield Township.

In 2013, the name was changed to Selwyn.

Area servedEdit

Selwyn covers an area of 316 square kilometres and was home to 16,846 permanent residents as of the 2011 Census. Located north of Peterborough, the area is a major cottage and recreation area. The Trent-Severn Waterway passes through the municipality. Agriculture is also an important part of the economy.

Department profileEdit

Selwyn responds from five fire halls with a mainly volunteer/paid-on-call force. The chief and fire prevention officer are full-time employees. The fire department also provides protection to the Curve Lake First Nation.
