Station 1 (Chartley Fire Station) will only be open during severe weather events.
After being closed for nearly a decade, the decision was made to open this station on a trial basis provided that the Department was able to sustain 8 members on duty. However, due to long-term injuries, retirements, and the need to back-fill those positions with overtime, the Department cannot fiscally maintain 8 members on duty for an extended period of time. When staffing levels permit us to do so without being cost prohibitive, it is our hope to reopen Station 1 on a consistent basis.
The members of the Norton Fire Department remain committed to providing the best level of Emergency Medical and Fire-Rescue response to our community in a safe, efficient, and effective manner. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, suggestions or feedback regarding our service delivery.
