Niagara West Fire and Emergency Services charges fees for a number of services, as authorized by municipal by-laws.
These fees are levied to partially offset the costs for providing some services. The vast majority of these fees are related to discretionary inspection services.
There are provisions for charging for responses to false alarms. These fees are levied when a property owner fails to take adequate steps to reduce accidental or malicious false alarms. Property owners are reminded that IN NO CASE is it acceptable to delay notifying the fire services when an alarm is activated.
