Trent Hills Emergency Services Base Construction

In 2018, Northumberland County partnered with the Municipality of Trent Hills to design and construct a new Emergency Services Base. This new facility is located at 50 Doxsee Avenue South, on the corner of River Street and Doxsee Avenue in Campbellford. The Trent Hills Base houses the Trent Hills Fire Department Fire Station 1, a detachment of the Northumberland Paramedics, and Trent Hills Council Chambers.
