There are three fire stations in the Township of Zorra located in Thamesford, Embro and Uniondale. These three stations, along with assistance provided by the Township of South-West Oxford Fire & Emergency Services for service to a portion of the village of Beachville within the Township’s jurisdiction, provide fire and emergency services to the Township of Zorra. Fire Chief John McFarlan oversees all fire services within the Township of Zorra.
For all emergencies, please call “911”.
Emergency calls are dispatched from Woodstock through the 911 emergency network.
If you see a vehicle with a green flashing light, please move over to the right of the road to allow the vehicle with the green flashing light to pass. The green flashing light means that a Volunteer Firefighter is responding to an emergency call.
